360 View of Hiroshima After the Atomic Bomb

360 Cities, a provider of high quality panoramic images, recently published 360 degree imagery of Hiroshima, Japan as it looked right after the United States dropped an atomic bomb on it. You can view the imagery as I've embedded it below or click here to see it full-screen on the 360 Cities website.
