This is free to see and is part of the Peace Park complex. There are public restrooms near by. The monument itself is not much by carry powerful meaning. Plaques are in English and Japanese.

The clock is nice as you walk through the park, but nothing that one would make a special trip to see. However, one should make a trip to the Peace Park, and the clock is there.

We were touched by this memorial. We made a second trip to the park just to be there at 8:15 a.m. when the clock sounded. Make the time to experience this memorial.
