The intense blast and heat rays of the atomic bomb destroyed and burned down almost all buildings within two kilometers of the hypocenter. And with the reconstruction of the town, buildings that could no longer meet the newly required building functions began to disappear one after another.
This course traces the past and present of downtown Hiroshima while visiting atomic bombed buildings that convey the traces of the atomic bombing to the present.
In the backyard of a pharmacy with a history of about 400 years, you will be shown a stone lantern that became a landmark for the location of the store in the empty ruins immediately after the atomic bombing.
