Yesterday, we traveled to Hiroshima.
Here we are, waiting for our shinkansen to Hiroshima.
It was a long trip, so we brought snacks on the train.
The first thing we took them to see was the Peace Park and Museum. It is a very depressing place to visit, but it is also very historicall important. Since it’s pretty sad, we made sure to bring them here first.
This photo is Genbaku Dome, which is the City Hall that used to stand in Hiroshima. It has been restored slightly so that it continues to look the same as it did the day of the bombing.

This little boy was riding his tricycle when the bomb hit. He was killed by the blast.
The blast was so powerful that it drove glass shards into cement.
