旧廣島護国神社被爆鳥居台座
  • Hibaku Torī Gate Pedestal of the Former Gokoku Shrine

Once three torī gates stood at the site of the former Gokoku Shrine, a mere 370 meters from the hypocenter. The August 6 blast toppled the gates, leaving them in broken pieces. This is the one of two pedestals on which the north torī gate once stood.
