Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum

Reenactment of Ground Zero.


My aunt, Kiyoko Funahashi, who died in the atomic bomb on Aug 6, 1945.

Made my first visit to Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. I came here with my dad when I was 6, or 7 but don’t have clear memory except the horrific pictures and burned ruins. The museum’s permanent exhibition was shockingly strong and unbearably moving. I felt profound passion and wish for peace of people of Hiroshima.
