(広島市)中区袋町 / Fukuromachi, Naka-ku, Hiroshima


Towards the sunset, central Hiroshima city gradually takes on plum color. A streetcar runs through the twilight along Rijo-dori Avenue running in the north-south direction of the city. The stone building on the left side of this picture is Old Branch Office of Nippon Ginko (Bank of Japan). It’s known as one of the A-bombed building and also designated as the important cultural property by Hiroshima city. Today, various kinds of exhibitions are held there, encouraging civic activities of art and culture.
