AKARI's wish for peace, Thousand cranes project


It's August 9th today in Nagasaki.

Every year, Hostel AKARI donate thousand paper cranes made by guests who stayed with us to the Atomic Bomb Hypocenter on this day of August 9th.
We have been continuing this project of "AKARI's wish for peace" to share this moment with everyone who visited Nagasaki.

Do you remember making origami cranes at the living room of Hostel AKARI?
Every year, we collect all those cranes into one big bundle and donate them to the Atomic Bomb Hypocenter on this day of August 9th.
We have been continuing this project of "AKARI's wish for peace" to share this moment with everyone who visited Nagasaki.

Travelers at that time, may be too busy back to their normal life in home countries now.
But we hope Nagasaki will be in their memories somewhere, together with their wish of origami cranes.

It's 9th of August.
Praying for the souls of the victims of the atomic bombs, and with the travelers wish for world peace, we hereby report that we have donated the travelers' cranes to the Atomic Bomb Hypocenter.

AKARI's wish for peace 千羽鶴プロジェクト


今年もゲストの皆さんの折り鶴を、あかりスタッフがゲストさんに替わり爆心地公園に届けました。ちゃんと届けて来ましたよ!
長崎への旅の途上でのそれぞれの鶴と思い。
日々の慌しさに長崎のことは忘れてしまうかも知れませんが、それぞれの記憶のどこかに長崎があることを期待しています。

時代や場所を超えた他からの祈りや思いは、被爆者と長崎の人々の心をきっと慰めることになるでしょう。

原子爆弾の犠牲となられた方々の御冥福と、ご遺族並びに被爆者の皆様の御多幸をお祈り申し上げます。
