Hiroshima Bombing Story | Tour around the Atomic Hypocenter ★ ONLY in JAPAN


Welcome to Hiroshima. It’s been about 75 years since the bomb was dropped. Its impact felt for generations which is why I’m here. City can’t erase its past but it can build on its long history. Move to the next chapter which is what I think is happening in Hiroshima today. This is the last generation that will grow up hearing first-hand accounts of the bomb. And its aftermath: the red sky, the black rain, and the tragedies to follow. The third generation is now the one sharing the stories and I thought I’d share one with you too. Today I’m gonna be meeting a father who is sharing those experiences he learned from his family elders. And now passing the baton to his ten-year-old son. So we will never forget that tragic day: August 6th, 1945. The Enola Gay was a B-29 Superfortress bomber, departed Tinian near Saipan in the Pacific loaded with a nuclear bomb. The first to be used in war. Hiroshima came into view. The T-shaped Aioi Bridge, easy to see from above. It was dropped from a height of 31,060ft (9470m) The Enola Gay turned around and the bomb detonated 43 seconds later. 1,968ft (600m) above the ground. The cloud seen from the air, rocking the plane 11.5 miles or about 19km away. Hiroshima, on the ground around the hypocenter, the city was devastated. Homes, offices, parks, life wiped out. Fast forward about 75 years later. The city has come back to life. Lessons of the past are all around the city. And I’m meeting Yuji and his son Keito Third and fourth generation Hiroshima residents after the bomb. Yuji decided to become a guide to share the city’s history with international visitors As well as make sure his son doesn’t forget about the past. He grew up hearing stories from other family members who were nearby on that day. Hiroshima’s Memorial Peace Park is where you’ll see some of the most striking reminders of that day because it’s very near to the hypocenter of the bomb. Yuji took me to the initial target where a streetcar just passed. That’s Aioi Bridge. Aioi Bridge is easily identifiable from the air. “Yeah this is, what we call a T-shaped bridge.” “It’s an original target.” “But…” “The air-man, I mean… pilot missed the target from here to [the] original’s.” “Hypocenter is 300 meters.” “But, at that way, I mean that [range] is kind of a little accurate I think.” Hiroshima is a castle town on a delta in the Seto inland sea. An important port, military, and industrial center during the war. The bomb detonated 600 meters from the ground, triggered by an altimeter at that height, which forced the blast down and out. This increased the radius of the blast, destroying more of the city. It’s estimated that 12 sq km (4.7 sq miles) of the city were destroyed as a result. You can see just how close the atomic bomb dome was to the hypocenter. We walked there next. The building here is known as Genbaku Dome in Japanese and it’s one of the most striking reminders of that day. “So this is the Genbaku Dome.” -“Right.” “This is Genbaku Dome. We call it the Atomic Bomb Dome as you know.” “So, we have to keep it forever for the, you know, history.” -“It’s about 200 meters.” “From the hypocenter.” “And can you see the top?” “So hypocenter is over there. So the top is bending, this way, that way, right?” -“Oh right from the impact you can see.” “It’s warped a little bit because of that.” -“By the brass, yeah.” Only 150 meters (500ft) from the hypocenter, is the ruins of the Prefectural Industrial Promotion Hall. Now called The Atomic Bomb Dome. The building was completed in April 1915 with its distinctive dome and solid concrete construction to prevent it from being destroyed in an earthquake. Video footage of it seven months after the bomb shows it in nearly the same as it lies today. It was one of the only surviving buildings so close to the hypocenter. And because if its importance in on the river before It’s now a symbol of the city’s past from that day in 1945. Despite its strong construction, everyone inside perished seconds after the blast. Yuji explained its significance to the city of Hiroshima but he wasn’t alive on that day. The reason he wants to share Hiroshima’s past to visitors comes as a result from stories of family, especially the one who was nearby when the bomb dropped. And went into the city to help the following day. This is Mr. Koji Numata, Yuji’s great-uncle. I traveled to Saitama where he lives today. At age 92 to ask him about his experience. He shared some of his family pictures with me. The stories that impacted Yuji when he was a kid. Yes, that’s Yuji in the 1980’s. I had heard from Yuji that Numata-san had some incredible stories to share about that day. And the days that followed. And it would be best to hear it first-hand from him. These are the stories that impacted Yuji when he was growing up. One of the most important places Yuji took me on the tour was the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. A place to remember what happened that day, from the bomb to its effects, and the loved ones lost over the years that followed. The museum has been newly renovated. The visual exhibits and layout taking advantage of the technology of the day. If you have been to the museum before, it’s worth another visit now. It takes you back to that day. A vibrant city before the bomb. The explosion and the aftermath. Often in very personal and grim details. “Wow.” -“Yeah.” From the clothing of the victims to the personal stories of lost lives and heroism after, it’s a museum that will leave a very strong impression. Hiroshima is now a few generations past the war and how the generations learn about its history from all over the world is very important to the city. Remembering the past is now as important as finding ways to move on from it. The Cenotaph is a place for remembrance. Where the annual memorial event of August 6th takes place. The box in the center quite significant. -“Stone box. There is a mini notebook. It’s the victim’s names on it.” “So every year, we used to add new names.” Over 200,090 names are currently in that box. The flame in the center is the fire preserved from August 6th, 1945 to this day. There are still a number of survivors known as Hibakusha alive today. But they were quite young when it happened. Many lost loved ones and have built up their families since. It’s a place where survivors come to connect the past to the future lives that they have now. In the distance is The Atomic Bomb Dome. About 100 meters away is the memorial to Sadako Sasaki A girl who was two years old when the bomb was dropped. But lived on for ten years with leukemia. In the year of her death, her father told her of the legend of 1,000 paper cranes. One who folds a thousand will be granted a wish. Yuji’s son Keito explains a story that every kid in Hiroshima knows well. The bell is designed to ring like a wind chime. Sadako folded only 644 before her death but children from Hiroshima and around the world have folded the rest for her. Thousands of times over. New ones are shown in glass cases around the memorial. And the paper from them is recycled into school diplomas and school certificates. So why don’t Hiroshima residents dislike Americans? “So, a lot of people ask me in Hiroshima, why don’t the people dislike Americans because of what happened?” -“I think it’s that peace education is very unique.” “So teachers and textbooks say don’t blame Americans. Just blame war itself.” “So I think that’s a key for the step forward. I think it’s good for the education to me and to [the] next generation I think.” -“To move on from it?” -“Right.” Near the A-Bomb Dome is the Orizuru Tower with a scenic deck to see the city and eat lunch. The wood-decked observatory offers panoramic views of the city, looking down on the peace park. There’s always a nice breeze up here and the perfect place to enjoy a bento lunch from the cafe. This is Hiroshima’s famous Okonomiyaki but wrapped in a bento. Delicious. Also in the Orizuru Tower, visitors can fold their own paper cranes. No matter what it looks like, you can still drop your crane in a unique glass wall on the side of the building. It’s a little scary walking out there. We’re twelve floors up. There are already thousands of cranes underneath mine. The area around the peace park after the bomb was in ruins. But today, it’s the place where students come from all over the world to learn about what happened. And see how far Hiroshima has come. It’s one of the most popular stops for all international visitors to Japan. The Atomic Bomb Dome now surrounded by a thriving park, city and life. The city has now moved to the next chapter, but it’s residents like Yuji and his son who will make sure that the past is never forgotten. “My mission. I know it’s like my mission.” “He gave me a good baton. So, my baton to my son, to the next.” “I think that the perspective of peace is a bit different.” “My uncle has it kind of, real.” “He feel. He smell. He, you know… tested, I don’t know.” “So, it’s real.” “It’s a real story. But I’m not, I don’t know that you know?” “Reality but I know the story from him or many textbooks or stuff” “I learn many things. So I wanna give him the next baton to my kid’s generation.” “Give him.” “In the future.” Keito recently volunteered to help the recovery from tragic landslides that struck Hiroshima in 2017. Where many people lost their lives. They say time covers all scars. They fade over the years but are always visible so we won’t forget them. Hiroshima has many scars, has been through so much, but the next chapter is yet unwritten. From meeting Yuji and Keito, it will be a much more peaceful chapter than the last.

    🙏I will never forget my Fathers stories, he was a WWII Veteran/Hero who fought against the Japanese. Ironically he grew up speaking English, Spanish, and Japanese. Worked at a Japanese grocery store in NorCal (Northern California, USA), when the call came he went and fought in the Philippines(wounded), and went to Hiroshima as soon as the Japanese surrendered as an occupation force (He Translated). Not once did my Dad say anything negative about the Japanese people (He cared for the Japanese people), he understood that it's just the way it was . I'm proud of my Dad. 😊🙏

    The Japanese also saw how the Americans and Russians treated the Germans were the Americans came as liberators the Russians came as conquerors and it was easier to surrender to the Americans

    "don't blame the American's, blame war itself"…..really ? How about blaming the Japanese for starting the war. They claim to be all about honour but they have no honour. They can't even acknowledge what they did. It's like a rapist saying "don't blame the police for arresting me, blame the world". John Daub you should be ashamed of yourself for allowing the propagation of this propaganda

    If the U.S. wanted too decimate Japan no nukes would have been dropped in the hopes of prolonging the war & disconnect between us. I’m under the impression that nothing but a nuke would have initiated a surrender just as I’m under the impression that nothing will initiate war between us now; we’re both extremely patriotic unlike the Swedes & ignorant (sometimes willfully) anti-American, American children that fight “facism”.

    I watched a 60 Minutes interview from the 1990s with a Japanese man who had been a soldier in China during World War II. The man said Japan had entered the war with China without enough rations for the large number of Japanese meat-eating troops, so they killed and ate a considerable number of Chinese during their visit. I knew a man who was the tail gunner on the Enola Gay. He said every man on that plane was pulled out of military prison where they were incarcerated for committing various forms of cold-blooded murder, except for the two scientists who finished assembling the bomb just before it was dropped. The point being, when they go to war people exhibit the worst possible human behavior regardless of race.

    From Wikipedia: The Allies called for the unconditional surrender of the Imperial Japanese armed forces in the Potsdam Declaration on July 26, 1945, the alternative being "prompt and utter destruction". Japan ignored the ultimatum and the war continued.

    Although it is globally believed that the atomic bombing ended World War II without the “Mainland Final Battle”, I don't think it is true.
    There was no need to drop two atomic bombs to end World War II.

    As of June 1945, the Japanese government had already recognized the defeat and had asked the Soviet Union to mediate peace negotiations.
    The reason the Japanese government wanted to avoid unconditional surrender was because Japan just wished that the Allies permit Japan to continue the Emperor System.

    Some reviews of historical facts shows that the US controlled the situation so that Japan would not surrender until the atomic bombs were dropped.

    Historical facts also indicate that those atomic bombs droppings were for the experiments to verify the effects of atomic bombs and the demonstrations to the Soviet Union.

    I feel sorry for all he people who were killed by the bombing directly or indirectly. But don't forget one thing: horrible atrocities were conducted by Japanese military forces in the years before, not just with the start of WW2. Since 1937 the Japanese Army was responsible for some of the most horrifying and gruesome war crimes in China. Just go to Nanjing or Changchun and you can see this there. The Japanese by themselves have to reflect what has happened and what crimes were done in their name. It does not look like this has happened yet, still convicted war criminals are worshipped every year at the Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo. Why? It is like German people would worship Heinrich Himmler on annual basis in Germany for his good deeds to the German people. I am sorry to say but I don't buy into this Nagasaki and Hiroshima We-are-the-innocent-victims story chanted by many Japanese.

    I lived i Japan twice. First time one year in 1985-1986. 3 months in Tokyo and 9 months in Ube, Yamaguchi. Was a bachelor then. Went there on short course sponsored by Japanese government (through JICA – Japan International Cooperation Agency). Lived at TIC (Tokyo International Center) in Ichigaya. I was studying Shrimp Propagation Technique.

    Second time I lived in Japan was 1999 (3 months), in Tokyo entirely, attached to Tokyo University, but living at new TIC in Hatagaya (the one in Ichigaya closed down, it was rundown anyway) studding fisheries. I was a lecturer/instructor at a Malaysian university.

    I miss Japan but I don't think I can afford now, too expensive especially lodging

    ok for the nits out there. FACT: if the US didn't drop the bomb, estimated an additional 12 million Japanese would have died and 1.7 million Americans. Fact, look at Iwo Jima and Okinawa, for some of the statistics. Fact: Japan alone killed 300,000 civilians in Nanking and there other atrocities, with evidence throughout the war. Japan's government (note: I said GOVERNMENT) in the 1930's and 40's were evil people, PERIOD. If Truman decided to not drop the bomb and the American people were aware that the US had such a weapon, he would of been assisinated. America prior to WW2 was 76% against all hostilities, after Pearl Harbor, every Amerian was involved. LEARN YOUR HISTORY MILLENIALS.

    Ive been to both pearl harbor and hiroshima and paid my honor to both, i think everyone should visit both to really help understand what happened back then and help heal the scars of war and build better relationships with our friends across the pacfic

    They started it. We finished it. By dropping the 2 bombs, saved hundreds of thousands of AMERICAN lives.

    The only positive thing is, that we don’t have videos about the hours after the explosion there in HD. Kids and baby’s without heads limbs skins faces. Adults burning and screaming. 9/11 would look like a birthday party in comparison.

    No, the "tragic day" was 18 September 1931 when Japan invaded Manchuria and began its vicious and brutal conquest of its neighbors in pursuit of empire. August 6th and 9th were the days when they finally got the message "it's over.". Ultimately millions of Japanese and American allies were spared and lived into old age because of it. And Japan still has not owned the horrors they inflicted on the world, every bit as monstrous as the Nazis.

    Hiroshima is a warning to people why they should never allow their leaders to drag them into obviously stupid and insane wars.

    Good work that day, USA. After two fission bombs, Japan surrendered. How many millions of lives that decision saved, a decision that would not have been made without using those two fission bombs. Thanks to the American dictator McArthur,, Japan is now a civilized country after WW2. God bless the USA.

    So if we had simply burned Hirosima to the ground with Napalm, that would have been OK? Blame the war lords of Japan, not the Americans whom they attacked 12/7/1941.

    Nuclear weapons shocked Japan into surrendering at the end of World War 2 except they didn’t. Japan surrendered because the Soviet Union entered the war. Japanese leaders said the bomb forced them to surrender because it was less embarrassing to say they had been defeated by a miracle weapon.
    The Soviet Union’s declaration of war fundamentally altered the strategic situation. Adding another great power to the war created insoluble military problems for Japan’s leaders. It might be possible to fight against one great power attacking from one direction, but anyone could see that Japan couldn’t defend against two great powers attacking from two different directions at once.
    The Soviet declaration of war was decisive; Hiroshima was not.

    Ok- I watched the whole thing. I genuinely admire Japan and their culture (modern.) But- the theme of this video is all "Oh the poor Japanese got bombed." Well….. they threw the first punch. They were not attacked randomly. How about- don't try to start any wars with the US and this won't happen again, ok?

    None of this would have happened if there was no December 7. 1941. We didn’t start it, but we sure finished it. TORA TORA TORA
