UNESCO - Hiroshima Peace Memorial (Genbaku Dome), Japan

The Hiroshima Peace Memorial was the only structure left standing in the area where the first atomic bomb exploded in 1945. It has been preserved in the same state as immediately after the bombing. It is both a stark and powerful symbol of the most destructive force ever created by mankind, and expression of the hope for world peace and the ultimate elimination of all nuclear weapons - it is exactly this hope that is (I thought) finely represented by the spring blooms in the foreground of this image. Thank you very much Tamayo, and for truly great stamps :)
