FROM HIROSHIMA for World Peace
By Rendy S. Surya, executive summary by darmansjah

Hiroshima is one of the city proper to 'mirror' the meanings of the values ​​of universal peace. That was my impression when stamped step Genbaku Dome (Atomic Bomb Dome) in Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park complex. Rubble exhibit Prefektual Hiroshima Industrial Promotion Hall roofed ellipse is at ground zero, the location of the fall of the atomic bombs that forced Japan's surrender in World War II.

For me, one of the most thrilling monument in the complex is a Children's Peace Monument
A nine meter high building culminates girls were lifting the statue-shaped origami paper birds. This is the personification of Sadako Sasaki who suffer from leukemia due to exposure to atomic bomb radiation when she was two years old.

When visiting this place, I was offered a piece of paper to make origami and placed near the monument. Once, a friend of Sadako who visit during hospitalization encourage him: he who makes a thousand paper birds then the petition will be granted the gods. He also survive to the age of 12 years and eagerly continue folding origami paper until his last days arrive.

I also took time to stop by the island of Miyajima. Unesco world heritage status has pinned against this place with Genbaku Dome, Itsukushima Shinto Shrine worship. If you want to place, I suggest coming in the fall, because the maple trees turn colors featuring charming.

Naturally, every weekend, there are many young Japanese are showcased along the path sets that contain a variety of boutique fashion products. They dressed up, complete with fabulous accessories that make me dumbfounded.

However, my goal to Harajuku is not  enjoy Takeshita  Dori. I chose to come to the region Jingumae Bape Store.

Finding this store is not difficult. It's right behind Jingumae Primary School. Right around the corner.

This is not the first store Bathing Ape. But at the Bape Store Harajuku, which opened in 1999, we can get the latest collection of Bathing Ape, clothing line built by Nigo, a Japanese hip-hop frontman who is also a member of Teriyaki Boyz.

At night, when the lights are mounted blue florescence to decorate store is brightly lit, the spacey feel much more pronounced.

Once inside the store, we will immediately aware that the Bape Store is not like other boutiques. Product display area is not dominated the room. Lots of empty space that allows us to enjoy the ambience space designed to support product nuance its hip-hop fashion.

 Collection available at Bape Store Harajuku including complete. There are three areas that are intended for men's colletion, woment's collection, and kids. They feature the latest collection of designer bands are also often used by famous rapper Pharell Williams classmates and colleagues at NERD.

For the collection of modes available, simply variety. Ranging from t-shirts, jackets, hoodies, until the latest collection Bapestar, Nigo made shoe line with Nike Force basic model available complete: men and women.
