Clock Tower of Peace (平和の時計塔)

The Clock Tower of Peace is a clock tower located in Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park. A unique feature of the clock is the spherical dial that represents the people of the world. The tower is supported by three geometrically designed pillars that represent the praying hands of the people of Hiroshima and the neverending hope for peace that transcends hardships. The Clock Tower of Peace is also known for its daily chime at 8:15, the time the atomic bomb was dropped. The beautiful sound of the chime played by the clock tower has been selected as one of the 100 best soundscapes in Japan.

The Clock Tower of Peace is located in Peace Memorial Park, just in front of the Atomic Bomb Dome. If you visit the dome at 8:15 in the morning, you can hear the beautiful chime of the clock tower. The clock tower represents all the people on Earth and world peace, and is a tourist attraction that attracts many tourists from all over the world.
