Japan Things to Do: 736 reviews and 1,308 photos
Hiroshima, the Japanese city famous for all the wrong reason! This is where the first atomic bomb in the world was dropped during WWII at 8.15 on Aug. 6, 1945.
Now, tourists from all over the world visit this city to see its miraculous reconstruction. When elsewhere in the world others are still fighting for territorial rights & whatever disputes that's been ongoing, Hiroshima should serve as a reminder that history must never repeats itself!
THE ATOMIC BOMB DOME has been registered as UNESCO World Heritage site in 1996 to convey the message of the terrible disaster of the 1st use of atomic weapon in human history. The dome is the remains of the former Hiroshima Prefectural Products Exhibition Hall.
