Demolition of A-bombed building `` Old Army Clothing Arsenal '' To start off in the new year 5:15 on January 25, Hiroshima Prefecture
Hiroshima Prefecture has proposed a policy to largely dismantle one of the representative A-bombed buildings, the “old Army Clothing Arsenal” due to aging and other factors. We have solidified our policy of forgoing the planned start of business from the new fiscal year.
The Hiroshima City's former Army Clothing Arsenal, which was used to manufacture military uniforms before the war, is one of the representative atomic bombed buildings that conveyed the disaster situation of the atomic bomb. The wing is owned by the state.
Hiroshima Prefecture plans to preserve only the exterior of one building and dismantle the two buildings because it is difficult to secure financial resources to maintain for all three buildings owned by the building that are more than 100 years old and may collapse due to an earthquake. I had a plan and planned to start the business from the new fiscal year.
However, A-bomb survivors and others are saying more and more that the memories of the A-bomb should not be erased.
According to the people concerned, in response to this situation, Hiroshima Prefecture has decided to postpone the dismantling business from the new fiscal year, saying that it is necessary to secure enough discussion time.
However, Hiroshima Prefecture intends to maintain the proposed demolition policy itself, and hold discussions with Hiroshima City and the government as soon as possible with the aim of implementing the project from the next fiscal year. That's right.
