Hello there. I am Terry and I am a full-time undergraduate based in Singapore. I take photos, write a blog and design websites.

And no, I'm not a teddy bear.

The Atomic Bomb Dome used to be Hiroshima Prefecture Industrial Promotion Hall, and stood about 200m north-northwest from the hypocenter (closest point on the ground). It is one of very few structures that were not levelled totally in the central area, and is kept as a monument.

The Peace Bell, one of the memorials in the park. This also illustrates that when you go to a historical site in Japan on a weekday you may avoid most other tourists – but you’ll be knee-deep in schoolchildren all wearing identical hats or uniforms.
