If you're in the area, to me, it's a must see. I was bit overwhelmed by the reality of being on the site.

Ground zero allows you to overlook the A dome whilst reading all about the day . The before and after photos show just how much devastation occurred

This is where the bomb was dropped but it is a modern street no meaningful memorial here just a street.

So sad and humbling and why why did this have to be? So very interesting and learned a lot of history that I was not aware of.

This is hidden away down a side street. Not much to see just a plague however it's a pretty significant sight really in world history

You will never know this is the epi center of the a bomb without reading the little plaques. Now it is a big hospital site.

Take the time to look at the photos and the community and society completely destroyed in a very wide area. How this has an impact on a nation, a generation and families. Makes me thankful I was not there when others were.

Ground zero is the epic point of the A-bomb located e few hundred meters from the Genbaku Dome. In fact you can see it through some business buildings from this site.
