"To foster peace, one friend at a time."

World Friendship Center was founded by Barbara Reynolds on August 7th, 1965
(20 years after the Atomic Bombing of Hiroshima)
to provide a place where people from many nations can meet,
share their experiences and reflect on peace.

World Friendship Center has continued Barbara's vision of serving the Hiroshima community
and visitors to the city in a variety of ways.
