Childrens Peace Monument was built to commemorate Sadako Sasaki and the thousands of other child victims of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. Sadako Sasaki is famous for attempting to fold one thousand origami cranes, while in hospital dying from leukaemia caused by exposure to radiation from the atomic bomb. In Japanese culture it is said that the gods will grant a wish to anyone that folds a thousand paper cranes.
