Day 9: Hiroshima

Hi there! I haven’t posted in a while because we were moving from Tokyo to Osaka.

Yesterday we went to Hiroshima. As some of you might know Hiroshima was the city where the USA dropped the first nuclear bomb as a weapon.

N700 Shinkaisen 

After travelling on the Shinkaisen to Hiroshima, we head over to the Atomic Bomb Dome, where. The dome was preserved as part of the Peace Park.

Hiroshima’s Street Car reminds me of Melbourne 

Then it sank in, the horrors and atrocities of war, the deaths of peaceful civilians all gone in a mere few seconds. And exploring the Eternal Flame (where the flame keeps on burning until there are no atomic. Bombs in the world), the memorial and the Peace Bell  was really sad.

Another awesome place to explore was Shukkeien Gardens – where the lords can have a peaceful rest in Feudal Japan.
