The president of the United States, Joe Biden, leads G7 leaders on a “1,400-year-old” shrine tour in Hiroshima

A “1,400-year-old shrine” in Hiroshima, Japan, was visited on Saturday by President of the United States, Joe Biden and G7 leaders, according to the White House.

In a tweet posted by the White House, “President Biden visited the Itsukushima Shrine, which dates back 1,400 years, in Hiroshima with G7 leaders.”

The “1,400-year-old shrine” is situated on Itsukushima, also known as Miyajima. Its “floating” torii gate is what gives it most of its notoriety. It is situated in Hatsukaichi, Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan, and is connected to the mainland by ferry.

The Hiroshima “Peace Memorial Park” in Japan was visited by the leaders of G7 on Friday. At “Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park,” they additionally planted saplings. Immediately following placing wreaths at the Hiroshima Memorial, the G7 members gathered for a picture.

The only building still standing in the area, “Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park (Genbaku Dome),” depicts the devastation caused when the “world’s first atomic bomb” was dropped on the city on August 6, 1945.

To attend the G7 Summit, which will take place in Hiroshima from May 19–21, the G7 leaders are currently in Japan. Interesting to note is that in 2023, Japan became the G7 president.

Additionally, on Friday, Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi flew out to Japan to attend the “G7 Summit” in Hiroshima. In a statement made prior to his departure, Mr. Modi stated that he would travel to Japan to attend the “G7 Summit” at the invitation of Fumio Kishida, the prime minister of Japan. Due to India’s current G20 presidency, he claimed that his attendance at the G7 Summit was particularly significant.
