UN Peace Bell takes part in carp streamer event

On 29.4.2024, a Koinobori (carp streamer) event was held at Osaka Expo ’70 Commemorative Park, organised by Dr NAKAMURA Tetsu of Momoyama Gakuin College of Education. The event included making and hoisting carp streamers, striking a small UN Peace Bell and making jumbo bubbles to pray for world peace and cultural exchange.

The children were so interested in the Peace Bell that they struck it one after the other, making its sound resonate. The children naturally bowed their heads with their hands together after striking the bells, which showed a prayer for peace that transcended any religions and any ideologies.
