Miyako Jodai


Miyako Jodai was 6 years old, living with her grandmother and aunt in the hills of Nagasaki, when the US government dropped the atomic bomb. After 20 years Miyako Jodai returned to the location where she survived the bombing. 

Her memories are animated by the kaistudio in the spirit of the Kamishibai story artform Jodai-san uses to tell her story.



Raise your voice with Hibakusha like Miyako who declare that now is the time for all nations to join the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons — to end the darkness of this era and welcome the sunrise on a new day through the force of law and the will of the people.

We now have the opportunity to bring the treaty into force.We now have the opportunity to stop funding nuclear violence instead of funding human needs. We now have the opportunity to stop risking the life of future generations. Take action to ensure there will be no more Hibakusha. Remember the lost of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, honor their memories and the Hibakusha with action.
