Symbol of Peace in Japan

Japan is one of my favorite countries to visit. The culture is fascinating and unique, particularly because the country is very homogenous. Due to the fact that this country is an island, its culture has existed in a vacuum for a long time. This translates into a distinctive culture and people. Fresh sushi where it all started is hard to beat as well. However, a trip to Japan is unique and special for another reason. The country has a turbulent history. There is a place that no one should miss while in the “Land of the Rising Sun.” I’m referring to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum.

While seeing a memorial that honors the death of nearly 250,000 innocent people might seem like a depressing way to spend a vacation, it’s a very important piece of world history. I was reluctant myself at the idea of going to the museum, but I don’t regret it.

The Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum commemorates the explosion of the first atomic bomb. The memorial sits in the beautiful Hiroshima prefecture. The museum houses all different types of photos from the war, the blast, and the impact on the people. There are many pictures and some drawings done by the victims and survivors of the blast.

In addition to the stories of victims, the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum is significant for another reason. This place is truly a symbol of the need for world peace. A portion of the museum is completely dedicated to promoting world peace and the complete eradication of nuclear weapons. Spending the day at this tragic place is quite sobering.
