プラム色へと静かに暮れかけた広島中心街の夕景です。広島市を南北に走る鯉城通りと路面電車。写真左手に見えるのは、旧日本銀行広島支店。被爆建物であり、広島市指定重要文化財です。現在は、市民主体の芸術・文化活動発表の場として活用されています。

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.
