Took the Nozomi Shinkansen bullet train to Hiroshima. Top whack is 170 mph and the trains are always on time to within 30 seconds.
Hiroshima is a sobering place to visit. Although completely rebuilt since the atomic bomb in 1945 and now a thriving industrial city again, there are still reminders everywhere of those events and the main visitor attraction is the Peace Memorial Park which is at "Ground Zero" directly below the detonation point. The pictures of the devastation and the stories of the survivors are gut wrenching.
