The building in the picture, the A-Bomb Dome, is one of the few in the center of Hiroshima that partially survived the Atomic bomb explosion.
At the time of the explosion more than 300,000 people lived in Hiroshima. Only a third of them survived.
Hiroshima is a popular destination among young students. They will approach foreign visitors, and ask them a few questions in English. Take advantage of the situation, because this may be one of the only occasions when you will be able to speak in English with a Japanese.
