フォト・スケッチ:広島平和記念公園 Photo Sketches of Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park




‘Hiroshima Peace Memorial (広島平和記念碑, Hiroshima heiwa kinenhi?), commonly called the Atomic Bomb Dome or Genbaku Dōmu (原爆ドーム?, A-Bomb Dome), in Hiroshima, Japan, is part of the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park and was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996. The ruin serves as a memorial to the people who were killed in the atomic bombing of Hiroshima on August 6, 1945. Over 70,000 people were killed instantly, and another 70,000 suffered fatal injuries from the radiation.’ (Wikipedia)

平和の灯 /Peace Flame



The flame was lit August 1, 1964 and has kept on since. It will keep burning silently till the day when nuclear weapons completely disappear from the face of the earth and peace prevails over the world.
