Cenotaph for the A-Bomb Victims (Memorial Monument for Hiroshima, City of Peace) (原爆死没者慰霊碑(広島平和都市記念碑))
This cenotaph located in the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park is officially known as the Memorial Monument for Hiroshima, City of Peace. Constructed according to plans that fit the spirit of the Hiroshima Peace Memorial City Construction Law, the cenotaph inscription was determined in 1952 and an unveiling ceremony was held that year in August. The names of the atomic bomb victims are inscribed on a register in a stone chest that is under the granite hut, and the phrase “Let all the souls here rest in peace, for we shall not repeat the evil” is inscribed.

There is more than meets the eye awaiting any Hiroshima-bound traveler. Kicking off in Hiroshima city, the Peace Memorial Park, Hiroshima Castle, and Shukkeien Garden offer a couple of days of exploring; however, the real beauty lies along the southern coast of the prefecture. There, a series of islands spreads across the Seto Inland Sea: from the mysterious sea-submerged Great Torii Gate at Miyajima Island to the first half of the islands that connect Honshu to Shikoku via six spectacular suspension bridges.
