On August 9, 1945, at 11:02am, the second atomic bomb fell toward Japan and exploded 500 meters over this site. What stands here now is a single, black, stone column. Around the base, you can expect to see flowers, and around the perimeter, colorful origami in the shape of folded paper cranes. Although the monument to the epicenter is located within the Peace Park grounds, many people consider it separate and may refer to it as the "Hypocenter Park."
