Hiroshima

Overview

Introduction

When the first atomic bomb exploded over Hiroshima, Japan, on 6 August 1945, the city became an immediate symbol for the horrors of war. Today, it has several moving reminders of that day of utter devastation.

In the years since the war, Hiroshima has been rebuilt into a fairly typical industrial city (Mazda has a huge factory there). The city is located 175 mi/280 km west of Osaka.
