Hiroshima Highrise

Heiwa Odori, "Peace Street" is the main road that runs up to the Hiroshima Peace Park and is lined with a lot of hi-rise buildings. Not sure what this first building is but I actually quite like it. The simplicity and color made it stand out for me.

Right next door, this multi-use building includes a church and a kindergarden, and while not breathtaking in any way I also kind of like it.

The first of the big hotels is the Oriental Hiroshima.

For some reason the decoration on the top of the building reminds me of New York, a sort of neo art nouveau. Seems somewhat irrelavent.

The edge of the building seems much more interesting to me....

  2. Samurai helmet horns on the neo art nouveau building, perhaps? I agree also. Very nice photos. Janet
