Peace Memorial Park

this used to be the commercial and political heart of the city, however, after the atomic bomb was dropped it was leveled to the ground... when the city was being rebuilt, it was decided that this area would now become a peace memorial...

in the photo you can see the Cenotaph for the A-Bomb Victims... it is an arched tomb for those who died because of the bomb and under the arch is a stone chest holding a register of the names of the victims...

the Cenotaph is located between the A-Dome and the museum... the museum was very interesting and the displays provided historical background to Hiroshima before, during and after the bombing... if you ever visit this city, i highly recommend visiting the museum...
