Honoring Victims, Promoting Peace.
The mission of From Hiroshima to Hope Event is to commemorate the victims of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and all victims of war and violence. We educate for peace, non-violent conflict resolution and nuclear disarmament through a public outdoor event on August 6th featuring music, speakers, and a lantern-floating ceremony.

Every year since 1984, we have held an annual event in Seattle, with the hope that we can resolve international conflicts without violence and learn the habit of living in peace with all our neighbors on this earth.

Event Description
On Saturday, August 6, candle-lit lanterns will again float across Green Lake at From Hiroshima to Hope, Seattle’s annual peace event honoring the victims of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and all victims of war and violence. This August marks the 77th anniversary of the atomic bombings and the 80th anniversary of Executive Order 1066, which led to the incarceration of Japanese Americans on the U.S. West Coast.

Pre-program activities begin at 6:00 p.m., and a family program with music, poetry and speakers begins at 7:00 p.m. and includes keynote speaker, Lori Matsukawa, journalist, retired KING 5 anchor, and a co-founder of the Japanese Cultural & Community Center of Washington. Rev. Dr. Kelle J. Brown of Plymouth Church opens the program with a blessing. Performers include the popular Japanese-American drum performance group, Seattle Kokon Taiko, poet Sharon Hashimoto, author of More American, Ukrainian singer Roman Vashchuk, Patrick Oiye, shamisen, and Patrick Johnson, shakuhachi, with emcee Tara Villalba, a Northwest nuclear disarmament activist. The candle-lit lantern ceremony begins at 8:15 p.m, with lanterns floating on the lake at dusk.
