On a recent day-trip from Osaka to Hiroshima, I made sure to stop at the site of the epicenter of the world’s first nuclear bombing. The A-Bomb Dome as it’s become known was almost directly underneath the bomb as it was detonated at 600m above ground. Although everyone inside was killed instantly, the structure survived as it is seen here. Efforts will be made and a fund has been set up to ensure it’s preservation forever. The city of Hiroshima has done a remarkable job in keeping it safe for future generations as a sobering reminder of the ongoing threat that nuclear weapons pose as long as they are permitted to exist.
