Running along Peace Boulevard on the south perimeter of the Peace Park. These ten large gates covered in peace written in 49 languages, were built to mark the 60th anniversary of the bombing. They are best seen at night.

Across a busy road from the Peace Memorial Park. There are too many other memorials in the vicinity that render this monument unmemorable.

These gates were not very striking during the day, but had much more of an impact when lit up at night. I wouldn’t suggest making a special trip to see them though.

The gates are just outside the peace park, I went during the day, I’m not sure but I think they might light up at night?.. overall really good to see and why not see everything at the peace park and museum at once.

This is a part of Peace Park, so if you visit Peace Park, you'll have the photo opportunity of the Gates of Peace!

The way this place is lighted makes it so much more impressive at dusk than it is at daytime (and yeah - it is even easy to miss during daytime) And helps a lot if you know Japanese since there's a lot of text on...More

As we approached Peace Park I noticed that most people head to the Museum or Park and miss the gates totally as they are across the busy road. As they blend into the trees they are not overly conspicuous, but are definitely worth the minute...More

Once you have visited the Peace Gardens etc. it easy to think that is it but just over the road there is the the Gates of Peace. Once you have got over the busy road you find the gates which you can walk through.

It is located across the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. Was expecting the park to be big so it can be confusing. I would recommend to start from here and move forward to the museum, Cenotaph etc.

The gates aligned and seen during the day is good but I do think around sunset? The view is better :)

Don't miss this exhibit at the far end of the Peace Gardens. Worth a look . Very beautiful and simplistic in style yet so meaningful.

Ten gate like structures stretching 75 metres inscribed with the word "Peace" in 49 languages. Nine gates represent Dante's Circles of Hell and the 10th gate represents the living hell of Nuclear War. An impressive structure just across the roadway from the Hiroshima Peace Museum.
