Hiroshima

By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Our Editorial team's advice

Known as the hecatomb led by the 1945 atomic bomb, the city of Hiroshima boasts countless monuments in memory of the dead. A rare testimony of the "ancient town", the Genbaku Dome, though three-quarters destroyed, remains intact. This Peace Memorial is the only building left close to where the explosion occurred. It is today listed in Unesco's world heritage.
