Honkawa Elementary School Peace Museum

Honkawa National School was constructed in 1928 as the first three-story reinforced concrete building for a public elementary school in Hiroshima City. The L-shaped school building had a hall and a "shoe-off" area, as well as a trash chute that collected trash from the second and third floors.

Also, the school building had a modern structure incorporating arched designs for the openings on the first floor and the front entrance.

The school was exposed to the A-bombing 410 m from the hypocenter, and then was repeatedly repaired and renovated until opening in 1988 as a peace museum, where visitors can observe exhibits collected from the A-bombed site.
