The reflection in the river of the atomic bomb dome in Hiroshima, Japan. Floating in the river are candle lanterns, thousands of which were launched on August 6, 2015, the 70th anniversary of the atomic bombing of the city. Each floating lantern carries handmade messages and drawings, conveying each person's prayers for peace and comfort for the victims of the violence. The dome is now a memorial to those killed and injured in the bombing.
