The Hiroshima Industrial Promotion Hall was constructed in 1915. This building was highly regarded for its imposing European style.

Parts of the wall, which withstood the blast because it came from above, together with the steel frame of its dome. Because of its shape and circumstances, it came to be called the Atomic Bomb Dome (Genbaku Dome in Japanese). The dome was the only structure left survive and have become a symbol of Hiroshima.
