Hiroshima

Hiroshima will forever be remembered for that terrible instant at 8:15 AM on August 6, 1945. Today, Hiroshima stands as a sobering testament to peace. The famous A-Bomb Dome remains as a symbol of the destruction. The Peace Memorial Museum graphically explains the consequences of the bomb on the city by means of photos, videos and personal effects of victims. The Children’s Peace Memorial inspired by leukemia victim Sadako is still the recipient of thousands of folded paper cranes from school children around the world.
