The new Hiroshima Peace Culture Foundation was established by the City of Hiroshima in April 1998, after merging with the Hiroshima City International Relations Organization, to promote international exchange and cooperation in a way adapted to the changing times.
This structural change brought together the administration of the Hiroshima Peace Culture Foundation, which had up to that point served concrete peace-related functions for the City of Hiroshima, and the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum.
The Foundation’s International Relations and Cooperation Division inherited the goals and functions of the former Hiroshima City International Relations Organization.
We provide seminars and events for the promotion of international friendship, goodwill, exchange, and cooperation; support for relevant activities by citizens such as subsidization and provision of information; events relating to Hiroshima City’s overseas Sister and Friendship Cities; as well as support for Japanese learning and a consultation service for non-Japanese residents.
