Peace Memorial Ceremony

Peace Memorial Ceremony

The 2019 Peace Memorial Ceremony

Every year, the City of Hiroshima holds the Peace Memorial Ceremony to console the souls of those lost to the atomic bombing, as well as pray for the realization of lasting world peace. This ceremony, which is attended by many of our citizens, including those who lost family members in the bombing, is held in front of the Cenotaph for the A-bomb Victims (Monument for Hiroshima, City of Peace). The Peace Declaration, which is delivered by the Mayor of Hiroshima during the ceremony, is sent to every country in the world to convey Hiroshima's will for the abolition of nuclear weapons and the realization of lasting world peace. 

At exactly 8:15 am, the time the atomic bomb was dropped, the Peace Bell rings, sirens sound all over the city, and for one minute, those at the ceremony grounds, in households, and in workplaces pay silent tribute to the victims of the atomic bombing and pray for the realization of lasting world peace.
