The Rest House of Peace Memorial Park
The Rest House of Peace Memorial Park was built in 1929 by the Taisho-ya Kimono Shop. In 1982, the building was rebuilt into the Rest House of Peace Memorial Park and has been served as a resting place in the park. The rest house is re-opened on July 1, 2020.
When the atomic bomb dropped, the building was located about 170 meters away from the hypocenter. It burned down except the basement, but was restored after the war.
