... It was a pleasant place to visit, very peaceful, and very different than our next stop: the Hiroshima Peace Memorial.

I was taking a photo at a large mound that holds the cremated remains of many of ...

... accept, which then gave them the mandate to drop the bombs. Also the timetable was designed to drop the bombs before the Russians could get involved in Japan as the allies were fearing the rise of communism at that point.
