Great picture David that doesn’t need any words! It was a haunting experience for me to visit this place, which includes the Peace Memorial Park, Peace Memorial Museum, and Genbaku Dome.
Thanks. Yes, haunting experience it is, indeed.
I need to write about it here one day (understand: I wrote about it in my French blog two years ago, I need to find the time to translate it).
What is or was this, David?
It is also called the A Bomb Dome.
It is a building in Hiroshima that was located almost under the hypocenter of the bomb, and one of the few that were still standing after the explosion (being made of steeled concrete).
While the other buildings were razed when it was time to rebuild the city, this one was kept as is, and will always remain this way as long as possible, so that the bomb and those who died are never forgotten.

And it’s UNESCO page: https://whc.unesco.org/en/list/775
Awesome shot ! I’ve got to get there this summer before the end of my 1-year secondment in Tokyo.
