the hiroshima peace park and the atomic dome [vlog]


Very little remains of the city of Hiroshima from before August 6, 1945 when the world’s first use of an atomic weapon changed the Japanese city – and the world – in an instant. The epicenter of the blast was very close to what is now called the Atomic Dome, one of the few structures to survive in any fashion. As I walked around the Peace Park on a beautiful day I contemplated the meaning of the site. The video log [vlog] below is the result, at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park [広島平和記念公園].
