In last 70 years, Japan underwent two awful disasters. The one by atomic bomb The one by the earthquake Thousands of people died and injured in those two but There is one big difference "HIBAKU" is human disaster Atomic bombs were made by human monster It could be stopped by human power Let’s cooperate together for better future No more Hiroshima No more Nagasaki
