Arriving at Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum

Officials in Hiroshima, Japan opened a museum in early November 2012 commemorating the reconstruction efforts of Seattle community members in the wake of the city's atomic bombing.

The new museum, which will be affiliated with the famed Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, will be housed in one of the last remaining Hiroshima houses built by the Seattle-led volunteer group.
