Hiroshima Japan Attractions

There is a plaque entitled “Ground Zero” that sits above where the detonation of the atomic bomb occurred. It is a small but very significant reminder of how many so tragically lost their lives. Other attractions include the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum which houses lots of photographs, documents, and details regarding the happenings of August 1945. Though this dreadful thing happened those many years ago, Hiroshima is not a somber city. There are many fun and ethnically-inspired things to do.
