The World Friendship Center offers accommodation for guests
who would like to learn about Hiroshima and the Japanese culture and take part in the peace program.
With advance notice, WFC can schedule Hibakusha (A-bomb survivor) first-hand accounts of how their lives have been impacted by the Atomic bomb. As well as sharing their stories of August 6th, 1945 and the effect on their lives and those that they loved, many Hibakusha also offer their vision and work for peace and forgiveness. The Hibakusha story typically includes time for your personal questions and concerns.
Peace Park Personal Guided Tours
Knowledgeable Japanese Volunteers from Hiroshima and the surrounding areas provide a personalized tour of the Peace Memorial Park, in English, for hundreds of WFC guests annually. This tour of the Peace Park includes the meaning and history of several select monuments located throughout the Peace Park. Your personalized tour is a perfect complement to a visit to the moving and informative Peace Memorial Museum (not included in the tour) and a first-hand
account of the A-bombing of Hiroshima by an A-bomb survivor (Hibakusha).
