Memorial for Hiroshima and Nagasaki Atomic Bombings

About the Event

Saturday–Thursday, August 4–9

Admission on Saturday, August 4: Pay What You Wish

In commemoration of the World War II atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which occurred on August 6 and 9, 1945, respectively, we will feature Yoko Ono’s Imagine Peace Wish Tree. Participants can write down their personal wishes for peace on a piece of paper that they tie to the tree.

At the end of the commemoration, the wishes will be collected and mailed to the Imagine Peace Tower in Iceland, Ono’s on-going art project, where wishes from around the world are collected and stored.

Sadako’s Crane will also be on display near the Wish Tree during this period.
