Our first full day in Hiroshima began on a solemn note. We travelled to the Peace Park and the A Bomb Dome to learn about the first use of an atomic weapon during wartime.

The students were incredibly respectful as we walked through the exhibits and the park. We delivered the thousand paper cranes to the children’s memorial, leaving a personal message of peace before heading to the museum.

The rest of the day was spent relaxing before the trip to Miyajima Island.
