The A-bomb Dome, enlisted as a World Heritages since 1996, was originally "Hiroshima Prefecture Industrial Promotion Center" which exhibited specialties. People started calling the building "A-bomb Dome" from somewhere down the line after the exposure to A-bomb. It has become a symbol of hope and peace, demanding the abolition of nuclear weapons. This dome represents all the hopes for peace that Hiroshima and all other people in this country are sending out to the world, with a wish to realize eternal peace.
