HIROSHIMA ATOMIC BOMB SURVIVOR'S STORY | THINGS TO DO IN HIROSHIMA | FIRST WORLD TRAVELLER

HIROSHIMA ATOMIC BOMB SURVIVOR'S STORY | THINGS TO DO IN HIROSHIMA | The Tao of David

Hiroshima was hit by an atomic bomb in August 1945. Today, you can visit the Atomic Bomb Dome, Peace Park and Museum to learn more about this horrendous event which affected thousands of people.

Another way of learning more and discovering information not available in museums is to speak to Hiroshima Atomic Bomb Survivors, another fascinating addition to your list of Things to Do in Hiroshima.

Visit Social Book Cafe in Hiroshima on the 6th of each month to speak to survivors of the Atomic Bomb. In this video, I talk about the story of Takaaki Morikawa, who was just 6 years old at the time of the Hiroshima bomb. He provided fascinating and intreresting information relating to his experience during and after the atomic bomb.

Please note that I chose not to film the actual meeting for this video as I didn't feel comfortable; ie I didn't feel it would be respectful. Why not visit Social Book Cafe in Hiroshima to hear Takaaki's amazing and unimaginable story for yourselves!

Visiting HIROSHIMA Today: IS IT SAFE from RADIATION?!

Hiroshima today is a city transformed, but it's known for harrowing history. The Peace Memorial Park, Atomic Bomb Dome and Peace Memorial Museum are very important for everybody to experience… but I didn’t expect to find so much fun on my city tour.

From tasty Okonomiyaki to craft breweries and rooftop bars. Hiroshima in 2019 is a really vibrant, modern place. But it also owns it’s history, presented best by the story of Sadako Sasaki.

This is my Hiroshima travel video, that I hope captures my thoughts and feelings of the place.

Next Series starts in Bangkok, Thailand:

PLACES AND SIGHTS FEATURES IN THIS FILM:

Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum - 0:40
Somewhere that everyone should visit in their lifetime. A poignant reflection on the bomb blast through interactive exits and artefacts.

Atomic Bomb Dome (Genbaku Dome) - 1:00
The former Hiroshima Prefectural Industrial Promotion Hall is one of the few ruins left standing from the blast. It is now a centrepiece of the peace park and a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site

Peace Memorial Park - 1:19
A beautiful place to visit, dedicated to the victims of the bomb. Very peaceful with several museums, memorials and art installations.

Hiroshima Trams - 1:37
The vintage trams have been a feature of the city since long before the bombing. They are still the best way to get around the city.

Orizuru Tower Hiroshima - 1:43
The best rooftop bar and viewpoint I visited in Japan, located right next to the Atomic Bomb Dome. A beautiful and modern design with several floors and interactive exhibits. It’s a great place to come with kids to learn about the history and a great spot to drink and unwind. You can also get down the building through a series of slides - lots of fun! There is a ¥1000 JPY entrance fee for tourists.

Okonomoyaki - 1:47
A savoury Japanese pancake and a native speciality dish of Hiroshima. Nagataya is a great restaurant to try it for the first time, but get there early - there’s always a queue!

Miyajima Ferry - 2:07
¥180 JPY for a one way trip, there is also a dedicated JR Line Ferry for anybody with a rail pass.

Itsukushima Shrine - 2:15
One of the most famous Torii gates/shrines in Japan. Partially submerged by water at high tide. You can view it from the land or take a boat through it.

Hiroshima - 70 Years After The Atomic Bomb

Special thanks to James at lumbercreatives.com

To most people, Hiroshima means just one thing. The city’s name will forever evoke thoughts of 6 August 1945, when Hiroshima became the target of the world’s first atomic bomb attack. Hiroshima’s Peace Memorial Park is a constant reminder of that day, and it attracts visitors from all over the world. But leafy Hiroshima, with its wide boulevards and laid-back friendliness, is a far from depressing place. Present-day Hiroshima is home to a thriving and internationally minded community, and it’s worth spending a couple of nights here to experience the city at its vibrant best. Lonely Planet

To me, Hiroshima is my home for the next half year.

Field trip to Hiroshima to hear A-Bomb Survivor's story. (Student exchange in Japan)

We take the Shinkansen to Hiroshima to hear a survivor of the atomic bomb blast speak about their experience prior to, during and after that moment at 8:15am August 6th 1945. Definitely one of the most memorable moments from my exchange experience in Japan.

Something that surprised me was the survivor saying that there is almost a 'stigma' attached to survivors like her. That is, she said that she would love to get married one day...but nobody will marry her, because some survivors have given birth to children with problems (genetic defects caused by radiation). I believe she also said that while she was angry for a lot of her life, she no longer holds a grudge against the US...and that one of the most touching moments of her life was when a group of American students apologized to her on 'behalf' of their country.

I hope my video does not paint a picture of 'doom and gloom' for Hiroshima today...Today, it is a beautiful place where people go about everyday life like others around Japan. But the city has not forgotten their past, and works to ensure that the atomic bomb used against Nagasaki soon after the Hiroshima incident will remain the last of such weapons ever used in war.

Travel Videos HD, World Travel Guide
To most people, Hiroshima means just one thing. The city's name will forever evoke thoughts of 6 August 1945, when Hiroshima became the target of the world's first atomic-bomb attack. Hiroshima's Peace Memorial Park is a constant reminder of that day, and it attracts visitors from all over the world. But leafy Hiroshima, with its wide boulevards and laid-back friendliness, is a far from depressing place. Present-day Hiroshima is home to a thriving and internationally minded community, and it's worth spending a couple of nights here to experience the city at its vibrant best.

Atomic Bomb Dome
================
Perhaps the starkest reminder of the destruction visited upon Hiroshima in WWII is the Atomic Bomb Dome. Built by a Czech architect in 1915, it was the Industrial Promotion Hall until the bomb exploded almost directly above it. Everyone inside was killed, but the building was one of very few left standing near the epicentre. A decision was taken after the war to preserve the shell as a memorial.

The building has since become a haunting symbol of the city, and was declared a Unesco World Heritage Site in 1996. Try to wander past in the evening when it's quiet and the propped-up ruins are floodlit.

Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum
===============================
The main building of Hiroshima's premier museum houses a collection of items salvaged from the aftermath of the atomic bomb. The displays are confronting and personal – ragged clothes, a child's melted lunch box, a watch stopped at 8.15am – and there are some grim photographs. While upsetting, it's a must-see in Hiroshima. The east building presents a history of Hiroshima and the development and destructive power of nuclear weapons.

The museum is undergoing major renovations. The east building will be closed until spring 2016, at which point the main building will close until a 2018 grand reopening. During its closure, some items from the main building will be on display in the east building. Check the website for the latest developments.

Peace Memorial Park
=====================
Hugged by rivers on both sides, Peace Memorial Park is a large, leafy space criss-crossed by walkways and dotted with memorials. Its central feature is the long tree-lined Pond of Peace leading to the cenotaph . This curved concrete monument holds the names of all the known victims of the bomb. Also at the pond is the Flame of Peace , set to burn on until all the world's nuclear weapons are destroyed.

Look through the cenotaph down the pond and you'll see it frames the Flame of Peace and the Atomic Bomb Dome across the river – the park was planned so that these features form a straight line, with the Peace Memorial Museum at its southern end.

Just north of the road through the park is the Children's Peace Monument , inspired by Sadako Sasaki, who was two years old at the time of the atomic bomb. When Sadako developed leukaemia at 11 years of age, she decided to fold 1000 paper cranes. In Japan, the crane is the symbol of longevity and happiness, and she believed if she achieved that target she would recover. She died before reaching her goal, but her classmates folded the rest. A monument was built in 1958. Sadako's story inspired a nationwide spate of paper-crane folding that continues to this day. Surrounding the monument are strings of thousands of colourful paper cranes sent here from school children around the country and all over the world.

Nearby is the Korean Atomic Bomb Victims Memorial . Many Koreans were shipped over to work as slave labourers during WWII, and Koreans accounted for more than one in 10 of those killed by the atomic bomb. Just north of this memorial is the Atomic Bomb Memorial Mound – the ashes of thousands of unclaimed or unidentified victims are interred in a vault below.

There are other monuments and statues throughout the park, and plenty of benches, including along the riverside looking across to the Atomic Bomb Dome, making this a pleasant area to take a break and reflect.

Nagasaki atomic bomb survivor tells his story

An extraordinary moment was to meet a Nagasaki citizen who has survived the atomic bomb explosion on August 9th in 1945 and is talking to tourists and visitors at the Atomic Bomb Peace Park in Urakami, Nagasaki, Japan.

ONOMICHI TEMPLE WALK | THINGS TO DO IN HIROSHIMA, JAPAN | The Tao of David

Are YOU planning a Japan trip in 2018? Looking for things to do in Hiroshima? The Onomichi Temple Walk is a great opportunity to immerse yourself in Japanese culture by checking out numerous Japanese shrines and temples (over 25 in Onomichi), visit Cat Alley and take the ropeway (or walk) up Mount Senko-ji.

However! Onomichi is a typical small Japanese town (almost like a ghost town and pretty deserted) with most local shops being closed on certain weekdays, which is frustrating! To actually find some life in Onomichi head to the area clos to Onomichi Station, where you can find Onomichi U2, with places to shop and eat.

Please note the negativity and sarcasm in this video is exactly that and is a reflection of how it can feel being in Japan for an extended period! Extreme honesty is a trademark of my channel and no offence is intended - Japan is awesome!

Overall Onomichi is probably a great place to visit in Japan, just not in early February when it's freezing cold and snowing!

Before/After the Hiroshima atomic bombings

During the final stages of World War II in 1945, the United States conducted two atomic bombings against the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan, the first on August 6, 1945 and the second on August 9, 1945. These two events are the only use of nuclear weapons in war to date.

For six months before the atomic bombings, the United States intensely fire-bombed 67 Japanese cities. Together with the United Kingdom and the Republic of China, the United States called for a surrender of Japan in the Potsdam Declaration on July 26, 1945. The Japanese government ignored this ultimatum. By executive order of President Harry S. Truman, the U.S. dropped the nuclear weapon Little Boy on the city of Hiroshima on Monday, August 6, 1945, followed by the detonation of Fat Man over Nagasaki on August 9.

Within the first two to four months of the bombings, the acute effects killed 90,000--166,000 people in Hiroshima and 60,000--80,000 in Nagasaki, with roughly half of the deaths in each city occurring on the first day. The Hiroshima prefectural health department estimates that, of the people who died on the day of the explosion, 60% died from flash or flame burns, 30% from falling debris and 10% from other causes. During the following months, large numbers died from the effect of burns, radiation sickness, and other injuries, compounded by illness. In a US estimate of the total immediate and short term cause of death, 15--20% died from radiation sickness, 20--30% from flash burns, and 50--60% from other injuries, compounded by illness. In both cities, most of the dead were civilians.

Hiroshima Maruki Panels: Art as Witness

Hand Video of 1985 SlideShow+cassette.
Since photos were confiscated by US Troops, only art remained as a way to document this crime against humanity.
The Japanese Government was about to surrender, and Truman knew it. There is no possible reason for Nuclear Bombs or as a way to fucking steam water for power. Everything about Nuclear is poison to the planet and to peoples' psyches.

HIROSHIMA ATOMIC BOMB MEMORIAL

HIROSHIMA ATOMIC BOMB MEMORIAL #OutThere Japan

I visited the Hiroshima Peace Park and Museum to learn more about the devastation caused by the dropping of the atomic bomb on August 6 1945.

There is some great information and also educational experiences about the dangers of nuclear weapons, and with obviously the headlines surrounded these days by the threat of nuclear war between North Korea and the United States, it’s something not to be missed on your trip to Japan.

I have chosen to not monetise this video so people know more about what has happened and why it should not be repeated.

Entry to the Museum is ¥200 and is open 7 days a week.

Anyone still looking for ways to keep on top of important information coming out of Japan about the March 11 earthquake and tsunami now has a central hub to consult, in the shape of a dedicated page from the Google Crisis Response project.
The resources listed include the Person Finder we've seen before, links to the latest information from the domestic utilities, such as Tokyo Electric (TEPCO), government agencies, and a comprehensive list of transit providers.
Many of those are pre-formatted to serve up Japanese pages in machine-translated English, but there's also a full ranzge of information for native speakers of Japanese.
Likely the most useful among these are the missing persons phone lines for the various parts of Tohoku affected by the twin disasters, while there are also continuously updating scanned photos of the resident lists in the various shelters for people displaced from their homes.
Lastly, this being a service from one of the web's heaviest hitters, there are also real time updates from Google News and Twitter. 


Read more: Google swings into action with earthquake crisis response hub | CNNGo.com

Amid the horrific stories of death and destruction surrounding the March 11 earthquake and tsunami in the Tohoku region, there's still room for the occasional wry smile, such as the one surely engendered by the news of 240 refugees taking shelter in, of all places, a nuclear power plant.
The group of men, women and children from Onagawa in Miyagi Prefecture has been holed up in the plant since the tsunami hit, seemingly killing over 1,000 of the town's 10,000 population.
The irony of the nature of their refuge clearly isn't lost on the temporary residents, as the nuclear accident at Fukushima Daiichi power plant 120 kilometers away plays out daily on their televisions.
The electricity to power the sets, incidentally, comes direct from the regional power grid to which the Onagawa plant is attached. The facility is run by Tohoku Electric Power, a separate entity from Tokyo Electric Power, or TEPCO, the operator in charge of Fukushima.
As the group shelters in the employee gym, right next door to the reactors, the good fortune of the survivors is clear.
One man, sheltering with his family said: It's pretty spread out. People are just kind of lying around and relaxing. There are a lot of aftershocks, but it's safe.
Meanwhile, an older woman settled on a more prosaic object of gratitude: It's very clean inside. We have electricity and nice toilets.

Hiroshima, Japan Travel

Travel & Trips Videos 4K 🔔
Hiroshima (広島) is the principal city of the Chugoku Region and home to over a million inhabitants.

When the first atomic bomb was dropped over Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, the city became known worldwide for this unenviable distinction. The destructive power of the bomb was tremendous and obliterated nearly everything within a two kilometer radius.

After the war, great efforts were taken to rebuild the city. Predictions that the city would be uninhabitable proved false. Destroyed monuments of Hiroshima's historical heritage, like Hiroshima Castle and Shukkeien Garden, were reconstructed. In the center of the city a large park was built and given a name that would reflect the aspirations of the re-born city: Peace Me
morial Park.

Hiroshima - Peace Memorial Park (1995)

Hiroshima, Japão. Praça Memorial da Paz. Filmado em 28 de outubro de 1995.
(Hiroshima, Japan. Peace Memorial Park. Filmed on october 28, 1995).

We went to the ATOMIC BOMB MUSEUM in Nagazaki, Japan (2019) │ My Travel Journal

Japan is such an interesting country, so different than ours, so organized, so clean ( the funny part is that you don't find garbage bins easily).

We came to Nagasaki, we really wanted to see how is the city, the people.

The Atomic bomb is part of the history of this country, imagine how important is for the history of NAGASAKI.

We visited the BOMB MUSEUM and the surroundings. Just by the museum we found the Peace park, the famous Shrine, the Cathedral, the Hypocenter (where the bomb exploded), etc.

In the PEACE PARK we will find the famous PEACE MEMORIAL STATUE, it is huge but today they were cleaning and fixing it. This statue has a very interesting meaning, the way is done and the Sculpture wrote this:

After experiencing that nightmarish war,
that blood-curdling carnage,
that unendurable horror,
Who could walk away without praying for peace?
This statue was created as a signpost in the
struggle for global harmony.
Standing ten meters tall,
it conveys the profundity of knowledge and
the beauty of health and virility.
The right hand points to the atomic bomb,
the left hand points to peace,
and the face prays deeply for the victims of war.
Transcending the barriers of race
and evoking the qualities of Buddha and God,
it is a symbol of the greatest determination
ever known in the history of Nagasaki
and the highest hope of all mankind.

— Seibo Kitamura (Spring 1995)
