    Hi guys-

    I’ve been looking forward to seeing this on HBO and blogging about it as well. I was in Nagasaki in 2001 and visited the location where the bomb detonated. Completely frightening when you realize how residential the area is (and was then). And the sculpture and architecture in the park where it occurred is somber, hopeful and protective all at the same time.

    Thanks for the review.

    On a much lighter note, I noticed that Pom Poko is listed as a related post. I reviewed that movie — what a riot!

    Thanks for your comment, Norm. I’m sure it’s quite the experience to see the site for yourself, even so many years later.

    As for Pom Poko, haven’t seen it, but it certainly sounds interesting.
