Ok, next is the peace memorial museum, which was actually quite boring during the 1st part of the exhibit, I almost fell asleep..... anyway, hahaz, here goes. They were signs on the wall explaining about the dropping of atom bomb in Hiroshima, like where the bomb was designated and what time the bomb was deployed. It was on August 6th, 1945, 8.15am, the judgment day. Anyway, here are some pics from the museum.
Boards explaining about Hiroshima and the morning of the bombing.
People taking time to look at the boards, basically all I did was walk pass everything and listened a bit to the device i rented. Yaya, I forgot to take a picture of the device, sue me with blogging summons.
Items used by the Japanese for air defense purposes, the light bulb was painted dark on the sides so that light only shown from the bottom of the light bulb. The book is the Air Defense plan.
Believe it or not, these are matches, they are cut into thin pieces then at the edge, smothered with sulphur and then are lit.
Japanese custom made military matches, lolz, funny looking.
The National Uniform back then.
A picture of children who were evacuated from the city before the bombing, most of them lost their parents in the bombing, I don't know are they even considered lucky, losing their families in just minutes.
the time of the bombing, the time where 100 of thousands lost their lives.....
the plan of the bombing, the map.
Areas that were selected for bombing initially.
Ok, here's Hiroshima before the blast.....
Here's after, so....what do you think? devastating eh?......
Here's what the 1st photographer thought of when he reached the site of the bombing, he only managed to take 5 pictures that day......
took a picture with another picture of the devastated Hiroshima city.
This a wall scraped by flying pieces of glass, ya only glass....
Replica of the A-bomb done, it is suppose to be smaller.
Statue remakes or the blast victims.
ok, the following pictures are items left over by victims of the blast, and most of them have passed away days after the blast.
A lock of Hair
A clock that stops at 8.15am
Ironically, the antenna that set off the bomb was made by the japanese. And the company is still a big company all over the world.
ok here's a photo of the butt of a person who died while sitting on the steps and his butt is imprinted on the steps.
Effects of the A-bomb blast to the eye.
A kimono pattern burned into the girls skin.
Note: This is a piece of metal, turned into a shape like this.
Lastly, I took a picture with a museum guide who was nice enough to explain a lot of things to me in detail, although she wasn't strong in her english. But she was a nice person overall.
Ok, finally I finished this post, more japan stories next time!!!! Tata!!!!!
