August the 6th this weekend marks 77 years since the bombing of Hiroshima in 1945. To mark the occasion, the 1983 documentary "Tokyo Saiban" is being re-screened throughout Tokyo. Directed by Masaki Kobayashi, it was sourced from extensive film shot during the Tokyo Trials. However, this week also marks the beginning of the annual Obon holiday season along with Aomori's Nebuta festival, the first time in three years, all gearing up for the annual exodus to and from the capitol.
