Hiroshima after 75 years: Walking the path of peace

Updated: Aug 7

It was 4 years ago that I had the chance to visit Hiroshima on our trip to Japan. We paid our respects to those whose lives were lost and spent 4 days in Hiroshima.

The hotel we stayed at was around the corner from the Bank Building that was the only building that remained standing, after the bomb blast. We walked passed it each day as a reminder.

 

We took a day to visit the museum, to learn how this atomic bomb erased lineage of families and loved ones.

 

The museum’s exhibition was founded by one parson—Shogo Nagaoka. Mr. Nagaoka did not only collect materials but also carried out research and surveys on the atomic bombing, striving over his entire life to achieve a clear understanding of the reality of the bombing.

 

There is a special exhibition tribute to him on this Anniversary at the Museum.

We visited the peace memorial park and rung the bell to commemorate those who passed. It was a trip I will never forget.

 

So today on this 75th Anniversary. I pray that this never happens again
