Schmoe House (シュモ-ハウス)

Schmoe House is an Atomic-bomb related facility located in Eba, Hiroshima. Mr. Floyd Schmoe, who was an American lecturer at the University of Washington, built houses for the people of Hiroshima and Nagasaki who had lost their homes and were forced to live in hardship due to the damage caused by the atomic bomb. The existing Schmoe House in Eba is one of the buildings built by Mr. Schmoe, and currently displays a variety of materials that were sent from overseas to help support the people of Hiroshima after the bombing.
