    The Children’s Peace Monument, erected 1958, in memory of Sadako Sasaki who died aged 12 from leukemia contracted when she was exposed to the bomb’s radiation at age 2.

    This building, a former kimono store erected 1929, was one of the few to survive the bomb blast. It now serves as the park’s “Rest House” (visitor center).
