Did you know that Kyoto, to many Japanese known it as old Japan and to them was considered the city of temples and universities, was off limits for bombing during WW2? It was originally targeted for the A bomb. However, the USA war secretary spared it because he honeymooned there! Strange, right?!?!

Most Japanese left clueless still why the spare and the most logical to them was that Kyoto was not heavily industrialized.

Therefore, the aim was made to bomb Hiroshima making it as the new target which later on bombed Nagasaki.

Anyone who has visited Kyoto has called it the world’s most beautiful city. I’ve heard nothing short of amazing stories. Adding this to the top of my list! Can’t wait!
