As a city which recovered from the destruction caused by the first atomic bomb in human history, and as a hub for peace, I believe that Hiroshima has a mission to promote efforts toward and contribute to the realization world peace.
To fulfill this mission, we are striving to send a message of peace from Hiroshima to the world and create a system that continuously supports peace promotion activities.
In 2016, Hiroshima’s “Message of Peace” Concerts will be held in Hiroshima, with the participation of world-famous artists and local artists, to send a strong message of peace through the universal language of music.
