“Connecting” History, People and Towns, and “connecting” past, present, and future

“Hiroshima City Peace Memorial Park Rest House” is the only building that retains the vestiges of the time before the atomic bombing. The concept is to “connect” history, people and towns, and “connect” to the future. It is a new center of exchange that conveys the history and memories of the hypocenter and the former Nakajima district to visitors from Japan and abroad, as well as locals, and “connects” history, people, towns, and the future with “Hiroshima.”
