The Hall of Remembrance(B2)

The Hall of Remembrance is a place for peacefully paying tribute to the A-bomb victims, and contemplating about peace.
The wall is a panorama that recreates a view of the A-bombed city as seen from the former site of Shima Hospital, the hypocenter. The wall uses approximately 140,000 tiles, the number of A-bomb victims estimated to have died by the end of 1945.
The basin at the center indicates "8:15 a.m.", the time of the A-bombing. The basin is intended to offer water to the souls of the A-bomb victims who died craving water that day.
