On day 7 of our day our our trip, we took the train to Hiroshima. This day was a calm, somber day, one to reflect and one to remember for sure.
This memorial was erected to memorialize the 10,000 students killed in the bombing.
A-Bomb Dome. The building left closest to the hypocenter and was left as it was to memorialize the casualties.
Greg met and had a very emotional conversation with a survivor of the bombing. He and his sister were the only survivors from his family and they still live there today.
Is the park were families celebrating Hanami, the celebration of the Sakura (cherry blossom festival).
We also happened to be in town on the opening day of baseball season. Go carps !
