This immersive virtual tour of Hiroshima tells the story of Hiroshima, before, during and after the atomic bombing, and explores Hiroshima Peace Culture. Throughout this journey, participants follow the story of Toshiko, a 6-year-old hibakusha (survivor) of the bombing. Through Toshiko, participants first experience what happened on August 6, 1945 and then join her and the resilient citizens of Hiroshima to transform their city into the beautiful “City of Peace” that inspires millions around the world today. The project utilizes computer graphics renderings, AI colourised photos, virtual simulations, rare historical film footage, interactive polls, discussion sessions, and introspective activities on a Google Earth platform.
