    The name of Hiroshima means much to people who pray for peace. A narrow channel between the coast of Hiroshima and Shikoku is called the Seto Straits. The beautiful sea there dotted with the small islands looks like a picture. The tune sung by boatmen of the strait matches with the tranquil scenery. Sounds of oars are imitated by pushing hard the strings of a koto.
