Hiroshima Peace Park for Japan Travel Packages (JapanTravelPackages.com)

Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park (in Japanese: 広島平和記念公園) is a "Memorial Park" in Hiroshima Japan that is dedicated to the legacy of Hiroshima as the first city in the world to be a target of a nuclear attack.  Before the bomb was dropped, the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park area was once the city’s busiest downtown commercial and residential district.  The park was built in the open space the explosion of the bomb created.  There are many memorials, monuments and museums that draw over a million visitors annually. The Peace Memorial Ceremony held on August 6,  is also held in the park. Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park is not only to memorialize the victims, but also to force the memory of nuclear horrors and advocate world peace.
