We send your peace messages to Hiroshima on 8/6
"Messages for peace" was launched in 2015.
Our main members are the creators from Tokyo, in their 30's.
We will display your messages created online at the Hiroshima site on 8/6.
"Toro nagashi" was initially started by the bereaved families and citizens who had experienced the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. They prayed for those who had been lost by floating handmade lanterns with names of those victims down a river. What can we learn from the bombing of Hiroshima? What messages can we convey to our next generation? Please share your idea.
We will display your floating lanterns on the screen at the Hiroshima site on 8/6Create your floating lantern
How will your messages be sent to Hiroshima?
