Messages for peace

Project period:2018.7/15(SUN)~8/15(MON)

Check messages of other people

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 ideas.

We will display your floating lanterns on the screen at the Hiroshima site on 8/6

How will your messages be sent to Hiroshima?

    戦争で亡くなった方々のご冥福をお祈りいたします。歴史を学び、犠牲者や遺族の苦しみ、無念を当事者感覚で味わうことが、戦争を繰り返さないことにつながると考えています。無関心が無くなるように、周りの人たちと対話を続けます。
