Not Toyama, Either (Superfluous Information)[edit]

This is supposed to be an article about Hiroshima. Therefore, while it's fine to say, "The bombing of Tokyo and other cities in Japan during World War II caused widespread destruction and hundreds of thousands of deaths.[13]," is it really necessary to provide the following: "For example, Toyama, an urban area of 128,000, was nearly fully destroyed, and incendiary attacks on Tokyo claimed the lives of 100,000 people."

What does this have to do with Hiroshima? Toyama? Toyama AND Tokyo? The first sentence more than makes the point. I think it would be good to leave such superfluous "examples" out of a discussion of "Hiroshima" (especially when "The bombing of Tokyo" hardly needs "incendiary attacks on Tokyo" as its own example!")

Three years on, but a valid point... Chaheel Riens (talk) 12:24, 27 May 2016 (UTC)

What about light rail?[edit]

How come there's no mention of the Hiroshima Electric Railway in the article? 69.142.222.250 (talk) 15:02, 6 January 2015 (UTC)

Timeline of Hiroshima[edit]

What is missing from the recently created city timeline article? Please add relevant content! Contributions welcome. Thank you. -- M2545 (talk) 12:52, 18 July 2015 (UTC)

Keep introduction clean[edit]

It's a city after all. What ever tragedy happened in the past should not be mentioned in the introduction. This is not how something or someone wants to be remembered. It's like putting the most recent gossip in an article about some celebrity. --2.245.107.125 (talk) 00:41, 6 August 2015 (UTC)

Worthless suggestion - the dropping of the bomb is without doubt the most notable item about Hiroshima.98.67.178.139 (talk) 10:11, 27 May 2016 (UTC)

Climate section reads impossible temperatures[edit]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Highest_temperature_recorded_on_Earth lists the highest temperature recorded as 56.7 °C (134.1 °F) and the climate table here shows record temperatures of 171F as records in Hiroshima from 1981 onwards. I think the table needs to be adjusted to the Japanese version which seems far more accurate — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dddfx (talkcontribs) 02:31, 29 June 2017 (UTC)
