Hiroshima, Japan

Hiroshima was a flourishing castle town in the Edo period (1603-1868). After the Meiji Restoration, the Higher School of Education opened, and the city began developing a large concentration of army facilities. Thus, it developed a dual reputation for 'education' and 'the military.' Approximately 350,000 persons were in Hiroshima when the bomb exploded.
