Officially named the 'Memorial Monument for Hiroshima, City of Peace', it is more commonly known as the Memorial Cenotaph. The names of all those who lost their lives are inscribed inside the central stone vault regardless of nationality. It currently holds more than 290,000 names of those who lost their lives to the bomb and new names are discovered and added to the list every year. The cenotaph was designed by Pritzker Prize winning architect Kenzo Tange.
