negative legacy as a place of sight seeing 2

This is an article about the development as a sight seeing place in Sichuan, China. The author wrote that the development was too quick and lack of eulogy. In the case of Hiroshima, the city decided to save Atomic Bomb Dome as a memorial place in 1966 in the controversial. It was 21 years later of the atomic bombing. In 1996, the building was registered as UNESCO World Heritage. People need time.

negative legacy as a place of sight seeing

One of my current interesting is negative legacy as a place of sight seeing. I found an article about this topics focuses on Auschwitz-Birkenau, Rwanda, Cambodia etc. We can also see the places in Hiroshima, Nagasaki, recently Ishinomaki after the Earthquake in Japan. I wonder if Fukushima will be it as well in the future.
