Japan - Hiroshima Peace Memorial (Genbaku Dome)

I visited this place back in 2008. i think it was the 3rd October, as my brother in law get married on the 4th in Nagano. It was a hot Day ad i can remember that i didn't feel well during the visit of the genbaku area. For me it was to much to see all the burned things they showed in the museum.... the most fascinating thing was the model from the town before and after the dropped bomb...

The Hiroshima Peace Memorial (Genbaku Dome) was the only structure left standing in the area where the first atomic bomb exploded on 6 August 1945. Through the efforts of many people, including those of the city of Hiroshima, it has been preserved in the same state as immediately after the bombing. Not only is it a stark and powerful symbol of the most destructive force ever created by humankind; it also expresses the hope for world peace and the ultimate elimination of all nuclear weapons.
