Many people are waiting along a street.
You can see flags of the US and Japan over their heads.

 

many audience waiting for Barack Obama

The peace park is strictly blocked by police, so all the audience were watching across a street.
I talked some people and was very surprised to know they came from all over Japan,
for example, Okayama, Shimane, Osaka, Tokyo.

This picture was taken near the atomic bomb dome.
Surprisingly a policeman was very kind and helped kids to take pictures.

But he gently refused her request to enter the park.

I took not only pictures, but also videos of Obama.

Obama was very far and I could hardly see him.
Besides that, I couldn’t listen to his speech.
But a heated atmosphere around the park was great.

I was very surprise to see many American people were waiting to see Obama for a long time.
It seems to be very difficult to see a president of the US even for American people.
