Kyu-bansho: Camphor tree


1-20 Hagoromo-cho, Naka-ku

Camphor: 1550m

The park was one of the three most famous parks in Hiroshima but it was closed as of March 31, 2000, and has been scheduled for demolition.

From behind the fence I could only guess as to which tree was the A-bombed Camphor. I asked three locals, two shrugged their shoulders, the third pointed to this tree while nodding adamently, and then walked off.
