Hiroshima City

Hiroshima City (広島市)

Well-known throughout #Japan as being home to some of the country’s warmest – and most passionate – people, #Hiroshima gets kind of a bum rap in the outside world. Of course, being the first city in the history of mankind to be destroyed by an atomic bomb is quite a grim legacy. But Hiroshima is so much more than that. Quietly and consistently voted as one of the most livable cities in the country, Hiroshima is still an under-appreciated destination spot on a first-timer’s Japan bucket list!

About 30 minutes after the initial explosion in Hiroshima, heavy rain began falling in areas northwest of the city. This rain was full of dirt, dust, soot and highly radioactive particles that were sucked up into the air at the time of the explosion and during the fire. The "black rain" caused contamination in areas that were not even close to the explosion.
