Established August 1975 The Hiroshima Post Office (commonly known as the main office) opened in 1871 as the center of communications in Hiroshima. A modern building with 3 floors above ground and 1 floor below ground was constructed with mortar coating. The place was the location of the Shima Hospital explanation board (ground zero) and the parking tower across the road. The building collapsed in an instant because it was directly below the hypocenter. It is believed that the people inside died before they could feel the light or the sound. In the evening of that day, there were only a large number of unidentifiable white bones and charred corpses lying among the rubble.
