With the death of Sadako Sasaki (12 years old at the time), a movement to comfort the spirits of children who died in the atomic bomb and create a statue to build peace began, and it was created in the Peace Memorial Park with funds from all over the country. It is a memorial monument. Since then, this story has spread all over the world, and even now, origami cranes are dedicated to the "Children's Peace Monument" from all over the world, including Japan, and the number is about 10 million a year. A bronze statue of a girl holding a golden folded crane stands on the top of a tripod dome-shaped pedestal, and on the left and right are statues of boys and girls symbolizing a bright future and hope.
