Welcome to the Hiroshima Peace Media Center

The Hiroshima Peace Media Center, seeking to advance the abolition of nuclear weapons and a broader peace in the world, is the only media agency dedicated exclusively to the coverage of peace-related concerns. Launched in January 2008 by the Chugoku Shimbun, Hiroshima's daily newspaper, the Hiroshima Peace Media Center maintains a bilingual English-Japanese website with local and international news, special coverage of issues involving nuclear disarmament and proliferation, commentaries by prominent figures in the field, and an archive of content related to the world's first atomic bombing. The site offers a wealth of information to support the efforts of researchers, journalists, teachers, students, activists, lawmakers, and other peace advocates.

Since the atomic bombing, a number of important peace makers have emerged in connection to Hiroshima's efforts to abolish nuclear weapons and bring about a more peaceful world. Among these peace makers have been A-bomb survivors, politicians, scholars, educators, writers, and artists. The Hiroshima Peace Media Center has assembled information about many of these peace makers, called "Icons of Hiroshima," at its online Peace Museum.
