Hiroshima: Peace Memorial Museum & A-Bomb Dome in Japan


One will never understand the tragic pain that the innocent victims had gone through after the atomic bomb, if you never stop-by the historical areas in Hiroshima, Japan. We read the history of the World War II and Hiroshima bombing on 6th August 1945 but we didn't know how the massive effects of radioactive hit against thousands of innocent people until we watch the videos and see the photographs at Hiroshima's Peace Memorial Park and Museum. It is very painful and emotional for us to learn about how the Japanese people were suffering and went through after the nuclear bomb.

On top of that, we are able to see the preserved A-Bomb Dome standing strong as today which is also known as the Hiroshima Peace Memorial. A-Bomb Dome is recognized as the UNESCO World Heritage Site as a tragic reminder of the world's history and not to repeat itself.
