77th Anniversary of the Atomic Bomb Game

This August 6th, 2022 is the 77th anniversary of the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima. Our generous benefactor, Mr. Kaoru Iwamoto 9p, was almost killed by this bomb. His Honinbo championship game with Mr. Utaro Hashimoto was moved at the last moment to the outskirts of Hiroshima, about 10 kilometers upwind from the center of the destruction. The blast disrupted the beginning of the last day their three-day game, but nobody in the playing room was badly hurt, so they set up again and finished. Only later, as they walked to their host’s house, did they get the terrible news of what happened as refugees came streaming from the center of Hiroshima.
