Hiroshima was the first city in the world to be targeted by a nuclear weapon. During World War II, American forces dropped an atomic bomb called "Little Boy" on Hiroshima, which directly killed 74,000 soldiers and civilians there. 75,000 people in Hiroshima suffered from various traumas. People there suffered nuclear pollution and lived in the fear of nuclear strikes. The bombing caused great psychological trauma to Japanese people, prompted the surrender of Japan and paved the way for the United States to lead in Asia Pacific. Obama's decision to visit Hiroshima makes him the first sitting US president to visit Hiroshima. By far, no sitting US president has ever been to the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki where the United States dropped atomic bombs during World War II. Meanwhile, his move has also provoked controversy in the international community. Some reproach that this will turn Japan into a victim. There are also people who believe this visit will become a turning point of the era.

Will Japanese people hear the apology they have waited for so long during Obama's visit to Hiroshima? Will the US government give up its lofty stance and keep a low profile? How will the difficulties in the government relations between the United States and Japan for so long be covered?
