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.
