The primary attraction in Hiroshima is, of course, the Peace Park. It is built in the area most severly devestated by the atomic bomb and consists of a number of monuments (top left), the A-Bomb Dome (top right), and a huge museum devoted to that fateful day. It is an incredibly beautiful park, and it is almost impossible to believe that the pictures in the museum are of the same place. The conflicting effect is extremely powerful and sobering. Unfortunately, the day I visited Hiroshima was very rainy and very few of my pictures turned out.
