About this sight

This monument marks the spot where on 9 August 1945, at 11:02 am, a B29 airplane dropped the second nuclear bomb on Japan. It exploded in the sky about 500m above the marker pole. Everything within a 2.5-kilometer radius of the hypocenter was completely destroyed, the rest of the city was left in ruins.
