Hiroshima 2012 map quilt by Diane Savona. During a month in Hiroshima, the artist spent many days 'beachcombing' the river edges at low tide. She found ceramic shards, electronic bits...and glass fused by the blast 70 years ago.  This map shows a section of the city nearest to the blast epicenter, with the rivers forming long black verticals, crossed by connecting white bridges.

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!

Hiroshima Map Offers Cat’s-Eye View:  Hiroshima prefecture has designed a purr-fect map for tourists wishing to see some of its attractions from a different angle.

They decided on a cat’s-eye view because Onomichi, a port town known for its large number of cats, is also home to a museum…
