Description Mitsuo Matsushige was at home in Furuichi-cho, in the outskirts of Hiroshima, when the atomic bomb exploded. When he saw the flash, he dashed outside and witnessed the orange fireball rise rapidly in the sky leaving a trail. Three days later, he went to his workplace in Fukuro-machi, 500 meters from the hypocenter, and found the entire area a burnt plain. He picked up this lump of melted rice bowls at that time.
