Hiroshima Then And Now: You Won’t Believe What It Looks Like Today!

Hiroshima is best known as the first city in history to be targeted by a nuclear weapon when the United States Army Air Forces dropped an atomic bomb on the city on August 6, 1945.

The city was completely destroyed. However, it has been rebuilt since then.

You’ll be shocked by comparing the historic photos with the new ones; Hiroshima is a completely new, different city now.

Genbaku Dome (The Hiroshima Peace Memorial) was the only structure left standing in the area where the atomic bomb exploded. Through the efforts of many people, including those of the city of Hiroshima, it has been preserved in the same state as immediately after the bombing.

70 years after its disaster, Hiroshima looks completely different.
