On the Ota River by the A-Bomb Dome, on an August 6, 1984, 30 years ago today. The atomic bomb exploded directl overhead, very slightly off-target. Thousands of bodies once floated on this river. Many came here on this day in 1945 to escape the heat and flames, and were boiled in the water. I've posted half a dozen other personal accounts today at this blog.
