Transcript of Hiroshima
Hiroshima was founded in 1589, on the coast of the Seto Inland Sea, and became a major urban centre during the Meiji period.
It is a major Japanese city and the largest in the western section of Honshu land.
The city is widely known for being the target of the first atomic bombing in human history, however, it was rebuilt following the war into major cultural center of the nation.
The majority of the current area of Hiroshima City was under the sea, with the seawater reaching farther inland along the lower reaches of the present-day Ota River, forming a bay.
Hiroshima was the first target of the "Little Boy" and "Fat man".
