Why Kyu Japan Bank Hiroshima is special ?

Remarkably, only two days after the bombing, the Bank of Japan reopened for withdrawals and provided space for temporary branches of other financial institutions in which to operate. It continued to function as a bank until March, 1992.

Designated as an important cultural site by the Hiroshima city government in 2000, the Bank of Japan donated the building to the city and it is now used as an atmospheric art space and for cultural events.

Entry is always free, and it is well worth dropping in to take a look if something is going on. Even when there is no exhibition or event taking place, wandering around the lobby, offices and around the, somewhat eerie, underground vaults is 30 minutes well spent.

When viewing the building, he looks like an old building like in general, but in fact it has a witness to history, that this building is not compromised as the time of the atomic bomb explosion in Hiroshima attack in 1945. Interesting!
