It’s when you come close to this standard looking church when you see how battered beyond repair it is. Then you realise its not a church, but a memorial, left to stand as it was after the Allies had bombed it in WWII. There’s an austere grace to the place; it’s a lot more beautiful in death than it probably was in life. There’s no organization looking over it now, just tourists walking through its ruins. There’s a bell here, the Peace Bell, donated by the Japanese in commemoration of the bomb that fell on Hiroshima. There’s beautiful statue call Humbleness.
