Once you have visited the Peace Gardens etc. it easy to think that is it but just over the road there is the the Gates of Peace. Once you have got over the busy road you find the gates which you can walk through.

Don't miss this exhibit at the far end of the Peace Gardens. Worth a look . Very beautiful and simplistic in style yet so meaningful.

Ten gate like structures stretching 75 metres inscribed with the word "Peace" in 49 languages. Nine gates represent Dante's Circles of Hell and the 10th gate represents the living hell of Nuclear War. An impressive structure just across the roadway from the Hiroshima Peace Museum.

An impressive monument to events of a bygone era. Beautiful setting. Easy access from local transport.

Part of a list of memorials in the vicinity which should all be seen with a well planned walk around the memorial park.

Across a busy road from the Peace Memorial Park. There are too many other memorials in the vicinity that render this monument unmemorable.
