Peace Tourism


"Peace tourism", commonly known as "Dark tourism", is a journey to visit locations where experience wars or natural disasters.

However, while dark tourism focuses on to see the tragic scene itself, the peace tourism, we introduce here, focuses more on the steps that how people reconstruct their city after wars or disasters.
What do you feel when you witness those who continue to move forward despite the tough past?

There are two main types of peace tourism.
Firstly, a trip to the negative legacy of human history. Visit places affected by the war and military facilities. When you visit the site, you would be reminded of the tragic situation of those days, and you can feel the people's strong desire for peace. For example, the Atomic Bomb Dome in Hiroshima has been left as a symbol of a strong will to overcome difficult memories and wish for peace.

The second is a trip to the areas affected by natural disasters. Japan has many natural disasters, such as earthquakes and typhoons, and many people have been deprived of life in the affected areas. People are aiming to "reconstruct" a city that is more prosperous than before, instead of "restoring" to return from the disaster. For example, Kobe, which experienced the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake, is recovering more than it could be thought of as a city damaged 20 years ago. The feature is that you can see the disaster site at the same time as the gorgeous Kobe sightseeing, and you can feel the value of safe living.

Peace tourism is a style of travel where you can learn a lot by feeling close to the "death" that you want to avoid if possible. Knowing the importance of life may enrich your future life.
