A four year old boy was killed by the atomic bomb in Hiroshima while riding this tricycle. The dad thought that his son was too small to by buried all alone. The father decided to put his grave in the backyard, and buried his son with the tricycle so that he could continue to enjoy it.
40 years later the father dug up his son to move him to the family plot. The tricycle was donated to the museum.
There were hundreds of stories and artifacts about the people living in Hiroshima. There were lots of things in the Peace Memorial Museum in Hiroshima that I didn't feel comfortable photographing. This is one story about the love of a father for his son that I really like.
