    Winter in Hiroshima


    Shirakami Shrine is only 500m from the hypocenter of the A-bomb; it was completely destroyed by the blast and rebuilt in December 1955. I visited Hiroshima in February 2011, and this was only steps from my hotel. That morning, I woke up to snow that gave a magical appearance to all the stone lanterns and torii gates around the city.
