... as messages so families could find each other or learn who had died. It was heart breaking. After the museum I was headed out to Miyajima Island. I had intended to take a bus to a train station but just felt the need to walk. So I walked the 2 Kms.

The Peace Memorial Museum
After the Cenotaph, I walked to the Peace Memorial Museum. This is the park's main facility. The force of the bomb obliterated the city of Hiroshima. The bomb, named "Little Boy", possessed a force equivalent to 12,500 tons of TNT.
