Message for the Global Peace Game
We are proud and honored to be the first Peace Field in Japan.
Conflicts are still happening all over the world, and many people are killed or injured. We hope that the smiles of children will fill the land and conflicts will disappear as soon as possible.
On this day, we are also joining you, by holding a peace game at our twinned Peace Field. We will make sure to leave our wishes for peace to next generations at the “Ikoi no Mori” community park in Japan.
