Kyoto Museum for World Peace


"Anti-war house"

Associated with the anti-war principles of Ritsumeikan University, this museum's objective is to explain the cause and realities of war in order to promote peace. Films, simulation devices (e.g. The Plan to Drop the Atomic Bomb on Kyoto), photographs and replicas carry out the exhibits' three themes called: Japan 15-Year War: Realities and Casualties; World War II and War Responsibilities; and War and Peace since 1945.) Noteworthy is a replica of a wartime house replete with curtains to black out light, and paper-reinforced windowpanes to thwart broken glass. The focal point of the museum's art is Hongo Shin's sculpture dedicated to students whose studies were interrupted by the mobilization in 1943.
