Strengthened security measures

​1) Purpose of strengthened measures

In light of the clash between protesters and city employees which occurred around the Atomic Bomb Dome on August 6, 2023, we have revised our security system to ensure this does not happen again. In addition, we have expanded the restricted area to the whole of Peace Memorial Park and will strengthen security within the attendee seating area (of the main venue) where esteemed guests and others from inside and outside of Japan are seated.​

2) Entry restrictions

  • Entry restrictions to for visitors to Peace Memorial Park (ceremony venue) will be in place from 5:00 to 9:00 am.
    • 5:00 am: Park visitors inside the restricted area will be asked to leave the park.
    • 6:30 am (*): Entry to the ceremony venue will be allowed for Peace Memorial Ceremony attendees. When entering the venue, attendees will first undergo a baggage inspection at the entrance to the venue and then undergo a metal detector screening at the entrance to the seating area (main venue).

      (*) Entry may be allowed earlier depending on crowding.

  • During the hours listed above, a designated entrance/exit and pathway will be set up for those paying their respects at the Cenotaph from 5:00 to 7:00 am (baggage inspection/metal detector screening not necessary).

Note 1: The seating area for hibakusha and bereaved families of hibakusha (approx. 1,600 seats) and the general public (approx. 1,200 seats) will be closed to visitors once the maximum number of visitors has been reached.

Note 2: In addition to the entry restrictions listed above, we may enforce traffic restrictions for pedestrians in the Peace Boulevard area when vehicles related to the ceremony area pass through. 

Note 3: Please note that these entry restrictions are subject to change.
