A heartbreaking memorial to Sadako Sasaki and all the other innocent child victims who died from the effects of the atomic bomb. Sadako is fondly remembered for the 1,000 origami cranes she folded with the belief that it would grant her a wish. There is also a statue of Sadako at the Peace Park in Seattle.

An area next to the Hiroshima Peace Park and Museum. It's a space specifically dedicated to the children and Sadako Sasaki who were victims of the Hiroshima atomic bomb. The children and youth commemorate the children and fulfill her wish of 1,000 cranes to end nuclear war. There's multiple cases of all the cranes that have been made in her honor.

Such a priceless story of how the paper crane has become a universal symbol of peace because of Sadako Sasaki. A beautiful legacy that brings agency to all youth to dream of and advocate for peace everywhere. Inspired and grateful to see our youth leading with purpose and courage.

Children’s Peace monument attracts high school student groups through the year to visit and make their speeches for remembrance, gratitude and peace. They often have crane origami signifying peace to be placed next to the monument

We were here with our tour guide Levi from biking adventure Hiroshima and he told us the story. It was touching and moving. People in the world need to know about Hiroshima's history.
