Former Bank of Japan Hiroshima Branch

Other Historic Site/Building
"Even though a mere 380 meters from the blast center, this was a robust building, so it did not receive structural damage. It resumed business operations two days after the blast and was used until 1992. It's one of the buildings in the blast that remains today. Designated as an Important Cultural Property by Hiroshima City, it is open to the public. In May of 2019, a permanent display of Hiroshima City materials, the ""Modern Hiroshima History and Migration to foreign countries,"" opened in first floor basement."
