This "T" shaped bridge was used as the aiming point for the bombardier on the US Army Air Corps B-29 named "Enola Gay." There is no charge for pedestrians to walk over this bridge. There are public restrooms near by in the Peace Park complex.

The crew of the Enola Grey used this spot to aim the drop of the first atomic bomb. It is unique as the bridge forms a "T" which could be easily seen from the bomber above.

Another marker in the Memorial Peace Park that places where the bomb was dropped that fateful morning. Simply mind boggling.

It is where the massacre was. The School where the children were evaporated is across from this point (today rebuilt as it were). The airplane crew was lost and confused and screwd up topography. Thousands would be killed anyway, so why worry?

Aioi-Bashi Bridge was the aiming marker and ultimate ground zero for the 20Kt atomic bomb (equivalent to 20,000 tonnes of high explosives) which was dropped by the Anola Gay on Aug 6th 1945. Just standing on the bridge really sends the shivers down you spine....More

It's not the beauty or the flashing lights that draws you to this place. You need to look, imagine, feel the history that this spot represents. And also remember that, despite the negative importance of this spot, it also is a symbol of rebirth, and...More
