Flame of Peace

This fire of hope for eternal world peace designed by Tange Kenzo who was the professor of Tokyo University back then has never burned out since August 1st, 1964. The pedestal was designed to suggest two hands pressed together at the wrist and bent back so that the palms point up to the sky. It has become the symbol of Anti-nuclear weapons, sending the following message: "Let's keep burning the fire until nuclear weapon is eliminated from the entire earth".
