Information(Friends/Companions Wanted, Events, etc.)

I (Masaaki Minata, owner of Garden of Peace) lost my elder sister due to the atomic bombing of Hiroshima in my boyhood. Within the music of the lyric monument installed in the Garden of Peace located in Shirakicho Mita, my deep sorrows at that time and earnest appeal for peace are confined.

Today's peace was built after the war through hand in hand efforts must be protected by us all so as not to get broken easily.

Hence, we form a society for promoting "Singing voice for Peace (Heiwa no Utagoe)" for the purpose of deepening people's concern for the Garden of Peace in addition to encouraging pure heart to aspire world peace, inviting voluntary members participants to join in the lessons to sing the songs for peace (5 numbers) engraved over the lyric monuments on the occasion of in garden events.

Why don't you sing the songs of peace in the Garden of Peace and transmit our singing voice to the world via the Internet?
