【TRIVIA】
Hiroshima is the first city in human history that experienced an atomic bomb. An argument was that no one wants to remember such a tragic experience and that the  the visible damage of the Atomic Dome should be destroyed, but it has been preserved as a symbol of peace to the present with the desire to appeal peace with nuclear abolition as the city that experienced the atomic bomb. In 1996 the Atomic Bomb Dome was registered as a World Heritage Site.

【NEARBY AREA INTRODUCTION】
The atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima on August 6 1945, and the city suffered a lot of damage which remains in the history of war. But just three days later, despite the bomb hitting nearby trains and railroads, the city train started moving again in cooperation with the people of Hiroshima. The streetcar is still the same as then, and is still running in the city. The trains that people in the town have reconstructed with all of their strength are still watching over the people in the town with a warm gaze.
