The "Dome"-one of the only remaining buildings that (somewhat) survived

The Peace Memorial

The Museum

The highlight of my trip to Hiroshima!

The first stop on our one week trip to Southern Japan was Hiroshima. It was exactly what you'd expect it to be: everything relatively new, gray, and sad. Luckily, we didn't spend that much time there. We saw Kenzo Tange's "Peace" Memorial and went into the museum. It was a pretty down day. I felt so disturbed after exiting the museum: sad about what we humans are capable of doing to each other, and apprehensive that something like what happened in Hiroshima could be repeated.
