Talk at Tama City Municipal Minami Tsurumaki Elementary School

On January 18, 2020, we had opportunity to give a talk at Minami Tsurumaki Elementary School, the same area where the office of our association is located. There were two sessions. The first session was for about 80 parents, and the second session was for 530 children. It was a snow-falling cold day, but both parents and children eagerly listened to the talk. All of thep arents rang the Peace Bell. Because of limited time, not all of the children rang the Peace Bell.

Talk at Two Elementary Schools in Uwajima in Dec. 2019

On December 5, 2019, Seiko Takase gave a talk at Uwajima City Municipa Mimaki Elementary School, Takao Seike the headmaster, in the morning, and Uwajima City Municipal Yusu Elementary School, Keijo Ueda the headmaster, in the afternoon. It is said that there were many school boys and girls in the past, but these days the number of children has been decreasing because of depopulation and declining birthrate. School boys and girls, however, were full of vigor and eagerly linstened to Takase’s talk on the Peace Bell. It was a pleasant surprise for her to see all children expressed impression and/or asked questions. School headmaster and teachers watched the boys and girls with warm smile and the classroom looked shining to Takase’s eyes.

Talk at Tama Municipal Oomatsudai ES on Jan. 19, 2019

Yuuji Mizuno, the school headmaster of Tama City Municipal Oomatsudai Elementary School, invited us to give a talk. The school is located in the same city as our Association is. There were two sessions; In session 1, Seiko Takase, the Representative Director, talked on the Peace Bell for all school boys and girls, their parents and teachers. She asked boys and girls if they wished to ring the Peace Bell. Most of them cheerfully raised their hands, which meant YES, and rang the Bell in order. The headmaster said that the sound of the Bell would remain in ther heart. In session 2, she talked in front of parents and local people. They asked many questions without hesitation, which she interpreted as a sign of high interest level in children’s education.


Casting of the Peace Bell to be presented to Republic of San Marino has started on 27th of April,2020. The schedule of Peace Bell ceremony postponed because of Corona virus. The bell is carefully making by craftsmen with their hearts. The bell is going towards completion.

The brochure “UN Peace Bell Guide” was adopted as an official tool by UN in January 2019.

In the past visits to UN Headquarters, we experienced that the UN Tour did not necessarily cover the Peace Bell. We mentioned that experience to Mr. Yasuhisa Kawamura, Deputy Ambassador, Permanent Mission of Japan to the  United Nations. Mr. Kawamura proposed for the UN Department of Public Information to improve the situation, and our bilingual brochure, with some adjustments made in cooperation with  Permanent Mission of Japan to the  United Nations, was adopted as an official tool by UN. The news was covered in  the NY Seikatsu Weeky, and was lso circulated by Kyodo News.
