1-2 Nakajimama-cho, Peace Memorial Park, Hiroshima, Japan, 730-0811
After the devastating atomic bomb attack on the city, it was found that nearly 45,000 of the 400,000 victims of the attack were Koreans. It is for this reason that a cenotaph was erected in the Peace Memorial Park in memory of these Koreans. The Cenotaph for Korean Victims stands on the back of a turtle structure and the crown placed on the obelisk has two dragons engraved on it, serving as a homage to the deceased Korean souls. The inscription on the memorial says, "Souls of the dead ride to heaven on the backs of turtles".
