This is in a street about a block from the river and across the street from a hospital. It a stone marker marking the hypocenter of the A bomb. Really not much to see or go out of your way to find.

This is located in a small street near the dome. Don't forget to visit this monument. Many tourists didn't seem to know about this monument.

We were just walking back from the park when we happened upon this marker. It is very easy to miss. Surprised that it is not more prominent.

This small memorial is tucked away down a side street so you have to seek it out. It is a chilling experience to think that some 600 metres above this exact spot is where the bomb exploded. Hardly an attraction as such but an essential...More
