Japan facts & history in brief

From a fishing village, Hiroshima developed rapidly by Asano family as one of Japan's largest cities between 1600 and 1868.
In the late 1800's and early 1900's Hiroshima experienced increased prosperity, industrial and population growth and become an important military centre.

Three days later, another atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki city.

We joined a 'conducted sightseeing tour' of the city, which included the 'Atomic Museum', 'Park' and 'The Dome' and many other places.
