In December of 1996, Hiroshima City’s Atomic Bomb Dome as well as Miyajima Island’s Itsukushima Shrine (1) were registered as UNESCO World Heritage sites.
The Atomic Bomb Dome(2), the building directly over which the atomic bomb exploded, has been accurately preserved since the aftermath of the explosion.
Itsukushima Shrine, constructed in the Heian Era Shinden-style, is an artistic and technical masterpiece, appearing to floatupon the surface of the sea at high tide.
