Peace Memorial Cenotaph

The Atomic Bomb Memorial Cenotaph contains the register of all
who have died as a result of exposure to the atomic bomb.
It now lists more than 180,000 people.
The arch over the stone coffin is a replica of an ancient haniwa house,
shielding the souls of those who died.
Through its arch you can see the Flame of Peace
and the A-Bomb Dome.
The stone here is inscribed:
'Let all souls here rest in peace,
for we shall not repeat the evil'.
