On the first day of countryside visit on June 14th, she visited Nagasaki and learned many things with regard to the history of punishment of Christians, and the damage caused by the atomic bomb dropped on Nagasaki. She particularly got interested in the atomic bomb incident since it was the first time to see it on her eyes. She observed every single exhibit in Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum.


The following day of visiting Nagasaki, she visited Hiroshima. She observed mainly the damage caused by the atomic bomb. After she took a stroll listening to explanation related to Hiroshima Peace Park and The Atomic Bomb Dorm, she learned the damage of the bomb at Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. She also got to listened to a talk about the atomic bomb incident by a successor. At one point, tears were streaming down on her face. It seems she has a strong interest in the atomic bomb incident.
