A room with a view. And a dandy TV. There was a beautiful sunroom off to the left but it really bad shape. When it was new it was probably a quite the place. This was the largest bedroom at a dormitory-style house. The first floor was just like a large house with a living room, kitchen, etc. while the second floor was a row of about 8 smalls rooms. This probably housed workers. This was the fanciest and at the end so I am assuming it was for the boss.
Reaching out. A doll reaches out in vain from under the rubble to a fallen comrade for help. This doll was made by hand by parents who have lost a child.

Unfortunately, the temple has been long abandoned along with hundreds of dolls each one representing a child that has died. See more from this location

Poison gas storage facility on a remote island off Hiroshima, Japan. This housed large storage tanks and was buried into the mountain. The gas was manufactured on the other side of the small island and production ended with the war.
