It is interesting to listen to this bell when struck. It reverberates for such a long time Just as the blazing of the Atomic bomb overhead had reverberated in the world for the 70 years since

Quite simply strike the bell and share your message of peace. Interestingly this bell has been erected since 1960 so many people have visited and rung their message.

Peace bell is located in the memorial park on the opposite side of the river than the atomic Dome. Anyone can ring the bell and it's nice to just sit in the park as listen to the bell ring on a regular basis. Peace Bell...More

This is a nice thing to do. You can ring the bell and contemplate and reflect whilst sitting in the park. It’s free and all part of the peace park experience.

This part of the Peace Park is a very nice touch. Anyone can go up and ring the bell for peace. It's opposite the Atomic Dome- go find it and ring the bell!

People are asked to go and touch the bell and ring it as a symbol for peace. That actually did feel quite nice and the ringing gives a good vibe to the park in general.

All bells should ring for peace - this one especially. An important part of the peace park, but can be checked in a couple of minutes.

Everyone in the Tour Group took a turn ringing the Peace Bell which is opposite the Atomic Bomb Dome before we gradually moved towards the museum.
