Just beyond the Peace Memorial Park, lies a wide road. This is Peace Boulevard, also known as the 100-meter-road to its citizens. This boulevard was originally constructed as a fire-belt to prevent fire from spreading by the air raids. However, it didn’t completely work against the incredibly destructive A-Bomb.
After the war, even against a batch of opposition, the street was revived and many trees were planted along it. It has been seen as one of the symbols of the recovery of Hiroshima, as it was said to be a land where no greens could grow for at least 75 years. Nowadays, it is loved by its citizens far beyond being just a boulevard, as an event called the ""Flower Festival"" is held here in May and the street is decorated with lights during Christmas season.
