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 who were lost due to the atomic bombing, as well as pray for the realization of everlasting world peace. This ceremony, which is attended by many 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, thus conveying Hiroshima's wish for the abolition of nuclear weapons and the realization of eternal world peace. 

At exactly 8:15 a.m., the time the atomic bomb was dropped, the Peace Bell is rung, sirens sound all over the city and for one minute people 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 everlasting world peace.
