~*~Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum~*~

June 4, 2010 shastokes

Hiroshima and the Peace Museum had to be one of the most historic places that I have visited.  Stepping foot in the peace museum and learning about how all the people were killed and affected after the atomic bomb dropped August 6, 1945,  made me feel sad that this happened.  It is also remarkable that the Japanese does not hold any grudge against the US after this tragic event.   I am hoping that this would not happen anywhere in the world again! In the museum, we had little head sets that you could use by typing in the number of the exhibit and you could hear the voice recording and explanation of the items pertained to it.  There were many exhibits and also a wax exhibit that showed the melting skin of the people. Many were children who were sent to work.  Also we got to see before and after models of where the bomb hit.  Then we walked outside to the Peace Memorial Park area and took photos and we saw this statue of a crane.  The Japanese culture highly treasure the crane as it symbolizes honor and loyalty.  One of the beliefs of the Japanese culture is that if a person folds 1,000 cranes he would be granted his/her greatest wish.
