The moment I hear about Hiroshima city, the atomic bombings of 6th Aug 1945 during World War II flashes in my mind. When I was kid, I still remember there was lengthy chapter in my history book on atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, how both the cities were turned into ashes, one of the blackest day of mankind.
I am preferably a solo traveler. I went on a solo trip of Japan covering Tokyo, Kyoto and Hiroshima. I traveled in the month of Nov, which is an autumn season in Japan. The season is famous for its colourful autumn leaves, perfect time to watch vibrant colours of leaves with shades of orange, red, yellow and brown. As Nov is onset of winter, the temp is very pleasant. But days get shorter, generally sunset is around 5PM, so you need to plan your day accordingly.
I still couldn’t believe I traveled to Hiroshima, the place which I always wanted to go since my childhood. The day I landed there, I was awestruck by its vivacity, couldn’t believe this was the city which was totally devastated in the bombings. It looked as if, it rise like a phoenix from the ashes, more stronger than ever before. Whole city was so beautiful. Perfect example of never die human spirit.
