... restaurant famous for charcoal chicken on the other side. My lunch supplies had already been purchased at a convenience store, consisting of a bento box, Onigiri (rice triangle wrapped in seaweed), four bananas and two litres of water.

Closer investigation into the ...

It rained off and on today. This almost seemed fitting as today was the day I explored the museums and exhibits dealing with the dropping of the atomic bomb on August 6th, 1945 at 8:15 am.

A visit to the Peace Park in Hiroshima will likely be most of the most powerful moments of the trip.

On Aug. 6, 1945, the United States dropped the first of two atomic bombs on Japan. The first hit at 8:15 a.m. that summer morning in Hiroshima and the Peace Park was created at the point of impact. Though the bomb exploded 630 meters above the ground and the radiation fall-out killed about 140,000 and impacted a total of 350,000, the effects remain.
