Creating New Hiroshima Peace Park Tours | Mary Popeo
Mary Popeo has been a peace activist in both the US (Boston) and Japan. We start the talk discussing some of her formative peace activism collaborations over the years. Then we talk about her current work with the Peace Culture Village (PCV) organization which is overseeing the official guided tours in Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park (since July 2020).
This is the first time peace park tours have been done in this type of new and innovative way in Hiroshima Peace Park, there is a learning curve here, but the quality will increase as they are able to cater unique programs to the diverse groups of visitors that come to the Peace Park in Hiroshima each year.
