2-2-3-2bag

550 m from the hypocenter Kobiki-cho
Donated by Hiroko Fujimori

When the bomb exploded, 13 year old Toshiko Fujimori was at her building
demolition worksite 550 meters from the hypocenter. Her family searched
for her desperately. The following day, her mother and older sister heard
from Toshiko’s classmate that she was seen holding onto a piece of wood
drifting in the river. They failed to find her.
Toshiko’s mother found this fabric bag made from her own obi (kimono sash)
under the collapsed mud wall near the worksite. She kept the bag in place of
Toshiko’s ashes until her own death.
