Shinei Park World Peace Bell

Shinei Park World Peace Bell, Ishigaki Island Okinawa Japan

Just like the one that is found at the United Nations Headquarters, this bell is rung during the International Day of Peace. There are three world peace bells located in Japan. The other two bells are in Wakkanai City-Hokkaido and Osaka.

The bells are created by using coins and medals from the countries of the world. The International Day of Peace is held on the opening day of the United Nations General Assembly. Its purpose is to call for world peace as well as a 24 hour cease-fire and a day of non-violence. World Peace Bells can also be found in Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Germany, Poland, Turkey, Mongolia, Australia, the Philippines, Argentina, Ecuador, Spain, Uzbekistan, and in New Zealand
