No visit to Japan is complete without paying respects at Ground Zero, Peace Park, Hiroshima City.

At 08:15 August 6th, 1945, an atomic bomb exploded above the city of Hiroshima, incinerating bodies and buildings in an instant.
160,000 people were killed instantly and many more succumbed afterwards from injuries and radioactive fall-out. 

It is an emotional experience to walk from A-bomb Dome past various statues and memorial tombstones to the Memorial and Reference Museum. A once in a life time experience that every citizen of the world will value.

The Flame of Peace.

An overwhelming sense of sadness at human madness grips you.

Only a rock can leave this place unaffected.
