... follow.****** The Hiroshima peace park is a pretty somber place for obvious reasons. It starts at what is called the A-Bomb dome (Genbaku domu). It is one of the few buildings left in about a 2km radius of where the bomb was dropped. The bomb was detonated in the air about 600m almost directly above this building which used to be called the Industrial Promotion Hall.
