Hiroshima Peace Memorial (Genbaku Dome)

Saturday, January 11, 2014

Sorry to keep you waitin' guys! As I want to be a responsible blogger, here I am posting the second installment of our Hiroshima trip from December of last year. After awed by the beauty of one of the UNESCO's World Heritage site, Itsukushima Shrine located in Miyajima island, we went to another World Heritage site. This time it's the Genbaku Dome; the only relic left by the first atomic bombing during the World War II. It was preserved and no one can go near the dome. You can only watch it along the bar fence but still, you can see what history and WWII brought. We also went to the mound where they buried the bodies unidentified due to the bombing and radiation. We also explore the museum where the other relics can be found. The museum showed us what is Hiroshima before the bombing, during the bombing and the after effects of the tragedy. Also, testimonies of survivors were recorded and preserved in the museum. While watching those things, you will realize how important world peace is. Everyone is hoping for this thing not to happen again. So let us support the world peace advocacy in every little thing we can do.
