Towards the end of the Second World War, the United States dropped atomic bombs on two Japanese cities;Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

The two bombings which killed an estimated 130,000 people, remains the only time nuclear weapons were used in warfare history.

70 years later, the cities are rebuilt and vibrant.

Now take a look at pictures of the two cities after the bombings and what they look like now.
