Mobilized Students were about high school age and were called upon to work in munitions factories and other war time work. The day the bomb fell, 7,000 of them died while demolishing houses to create fire lanes. The memorial is a tall white tower. This...More

This is a very sad place to visit, but very important to visit. There are so many memorials around this area paying homage to those lost in the atomic blast.

Erected to commemorate the children mobilised as part of the Japanese war effort, this monument poignantly reminds us of the terrible cost of war. After visiting the Memorial Museum you realise that many of the casualties from the atomic blast were young children. A sad...More

We were not aware of all the extra children who were in the city the day of the bombing, so this memorial and its audio explanation were very helpful to us. So tragic. The spot is peaceful; a nice recognition of the children who were...More
