A Messenger for Peace
On this episode, we visit Hiroshima to meet Mary Popeo from the US. She works there as a "Peace Guide," teaching visitors from abroad about the atomic bombing on Hiroshima, and relating the experiences of the survivors, also called "hibakusha." One of them, Ito Masao, has been encouraging Mary in her mission to raise awareness on the tragedy of the bombing. We also tag along Mongolian-native Selenge Luvsanchimed for a day in her work as a bag designer in Tokyo.
Mary listens attentively to the story of Ito Masao, who survived the bombing.
Mary works as a guide for foreign visitors to the site of the atomic bombing.
Mary also trains aspiring Peace Guides.
In her work as a bag designer, Selenge keeps a finger on the pulse of current trends.
