Kokura and Atomic bomb


Kokura was the target city to be dropped Atomic Bomb on Aug 9, 1945, but American B-29 couldn’t keep clear vision to drop on that day.
As a result, American B-29 changed it’s destination to Nagasaki….

Guess why Kokura was the target city to be A-Bomb?

There used to be the huge scale of arsenal in the south area of Kokura castle. Yes, Kokura was millitaly city during WWII.

Kokura people heard this fact after A-Bomb was dropped on Nagasaki.
This is a picture of the cenotaph in Katsuyama park to pray for the victims of A-Bomb in Nagasaki. Why don’t you stop by the cenotaph to pray for world peace?
