It is a memorial day on August 6th for Hiroshima, the world's first city bombed by atomic bomb.
On August 6th of each year, people will hold a peace memorial ceremony at Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, it is a day that all Japanese can't forget.
Just because we are living in the peace time, you should come here to understand the "Atomic Bomb Event"?!
I was born in Hiroshima and I am the third generation of the victims of the atomic bomb. My grandfather experienced the atomic bombing event while he was a high school student.
The United States dropped an atomic bomb in Hiroshima. It is said that it was cloudless, mild and the sun is bright.
"I only remembered the sky was flashed with the sound of "crack", then I was immediately blasted by the blast wind, when I sobered up, the surrounding area was already scorched and devastated.", my grandpa described the situation at the time to me in tears.
My grandpa also said that the Hiroshima was in the sea of fire, a land of wailing and despair, and everywhere, people was looking forward to drinking the water.
Because the people personally experienced that event is now aging and dying, we have fewer ways to understand the situation that time.
The building now known as the "Genbaku Dome" was originally the "Hiroshima Prefectural Industrial Promotion Hall", which is now only available for viewing. But in Google Maps, it can be "allowed in" for viewing!

This is one of the few buildings survival in the atomic bomb explosion that year.
Around the Genbaku Dome is the "Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park", the "Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum " and "Atomic Bomb Memorial Mound" are just in this park.
In this Peace Memorial Park, people will carry out various peace-related activities! The Hiroshima Flower Festival during GW is also one of them!
Hiroshima Flower Festival!
Thousands of colorful paper cranes were hanging outside of the Children's Peace Monument (also known as Senbazuru Tower), that is because Sadako Sasaki, who died of an atomic bomb disease radiation poisoning,
believed that as long as they had folded a thousand paper cranes, they could restore their health and realize their aspirations, so now people have always believed that folding thousands of paper cranes can cure the pain and make a wish. At the same time, the Children's Peace Monument is also a symbol of peace and non-nuclear.
There are many places where to welcome foreign visitors will teach you how to fold paper cranes, you can also bring them back!
We must pray together and protect peace in the future.
