Japanese Students Use VR To Recreate Hiroshima Bombing

Japan needs to lead the worldwide community toward "dialogue and cooperation for a world without nuclear weapons", the mayor added.

As of March, the number of "hibakusha" or atomic bomb survivors stood at 154,859. The global representation was the third largest on record. Now, the Associated Press reports a team of Japanese students have developed a virtual reality experience that recreates the attack, in an effort to highlight the lingering horrors the nuclear explosion wreaked upon the city - and prevent it from happening ever again. U.S. Ambassador to Japan William F. Hagerty IV made his first appearance at the ceremony since he was sworn in for the current post in July of previous year.

Pigeons fly over the Peace Memorial Park in Hiroshima, Japan, on August 6, 2018. I personally believe that Hiroshima has sublimated the tragedy and has made it a peace loving city, ' he said.

'I truly appreciate Bangladeshi people who show sympathy to the victims and express strong message for peace, ' he said in a message marking the Hiroshima Day that falls on August 6.

Abe said in an apparent reference to the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons adopted last year that differences among countries about how to promote nuclear disarmament have become evident in recent years.

The 73rd anniversary comes after Pyongyang's promise of a complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula grabbed attention following the historic US-North Korean summit in June.

At Monday's ceremony, Hiroshima Mayor Kazumi Matsui warned that "certain countries are blatantly proclaiming self-centred nationalism and modernizing their nuclear arsenals, rekindling tensions that had eased with the end of the Cold War".

Organizers say this year is not just about discussing the threat nuclear weapons pose to the world; it's also about offering a pathway to a possible solution.

But in order to bring this treaty into effect, 50 nations must ratify it, of which only 14 have done so.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Abe said in his speech, "It is the duty of Japan, as the only country to have been hit with atomic bombs in wartime, to work tirelessly in pursuit of a world without nuclear weapons".

The role Japan can play as the only country to have suffered atomic bombing has come into sharper focus with the world still far from being nuclear-free.

A bell tolled in Hiroshima as Japan marked 73 years since the world's first atomic bombing, with the city's mayor warning that rising nationalism worldwide threatens peace.
