This is an attractive monument, but when we visited it was chained so that it could not be sounded. Kind of defeats the purpose. Worth seeing if you are in the park.

Really emotional to watch people ring this bell, say a prayer and then do it yourself. There is a plaque on the bell to tell you exactly how to solemnly ring it.

The bell is in the Peace park so its easy to go and see. You can also play the bell if you want. Or atleast some people did.

The Peace Bell found in the Museum gardens is quite nice. It actually allows the visitor to go up to the bell and ring it.

A reminder that peace is something that everyone should strive towards. A melodious reminder in a picturesque setting.

Anybody is able to ring this bell, and the sound stays in the memory. It is altogether very well judged.

The bell is in the same park where the peace museum and the memorial are. There is a sign that ask visitor to strike the bell gently and only after the sound of the previous strike has faded to avoid damaging it. 5 review stars for its significance.
