English to Chinese: A-Bomb Dome / 廣島原爆圓頂 General field: Marketing Detailed field: Tourism & Travel
Source text - English Designed by Czech architect, Jan Letzel, the building, originally named the Hiroshima Prefectural Commercial Exhibition Hall was completed and opened to the public in April 1915. It was opened formally to the public in August that year. It was an impressive building, unabashedly European in design, located in the middle of a bustling part of town on the banks of the Motoyasu River which was plied by pleasure boats.
Located just a stone’s throw from the T-shaped Aioi Bridge, which served as the target for the pilots of the Enola Gay on August 6, 1945, the A-bomb exploded almost directly above the building and, although all 30 people inside at the time were killed instantly, it is thought that this explains why the central section under the dome remained standing.
Initially scheduled to be demolished with the rest of the ruins, these plans were delayed and Hiroshima was rebuilt around the dome and opinions on what to do with site were divided with some locals wanting it torn down, while others wanted to preserve it as a memorial of the bombing.
In 1966, Hiroshima City determined to preserve the A-bomb Dome indefinitely and solicited funds from within Japan and overseas. To date, the A-bomb Dome has undergone two preservation projects.
Despite opposition from China and the US, in December 1996 the A-Bomb Dome was registered on the UNESCO World Heritage List based on the Convention for the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage.
In the words of the Hiroshima City website,
“As a historical witness that conveys the disaster of the first atomic bombing in history, and as a symbol of the vow to pursue the abolition of nuclear weapons and enduring peace”.
It is also a major tourist spot and it is not uncommon for the area around the building to be crowded with visitors from all over Japan and all around world snapping shots of the wangled iron frame and crumbling concrete, or smiling for pictures with it as a backdrop. The atmosphere can sometimes be quite at odds with what the memorial symbolizes. You will also often find dedicated volunteer guides around the monument, who are keen to tell you more about the bombing. It can be tough to listen to, but they are well worth taking the time to listen to.
The A-bomb Dome is also a focal point in the design of the Peace Memorial Park, lying directly on architect Kenzo Tange’s “Peace Line” which dissects the park, cutting directly though the cenotaph and peace flame through to the center of the Peace Memorial Museum, and is often used as a backdrop to (generally) quiet protests and vigils by peace and anti-nuclear activists and to regular open-air music concerts held on the opposite bank of the river.

English to Chinese: Fushimi Inari Taisha / 伏见稻荷大社 General field: Marketing Detailed field: Tourism & Travel
Source text - English Fushimi Inari is the main shrine dedicated to Inari, the god of rice. Foxes are the symbol of Inari. More than thirty thousand other shrines to this god are said to exist throughout Japan, but Fushimi Inari Taisha is by far the most well-known. Inari is also the patron of business, so each of the wooden torii has been donated by a business, with the year and name carved into the gate.
April and October are both festival times at this shrine, and great times to visit. Autumn is when it is truly at its best. I myself first came by Fushimi Inari on a cold winter day, but without any foreknowledge of what the shrine was about. Passing through the Keihan station dozens of times, I knew from the fox and torii designs in the station that there had to be a major shrine nearby, so I joined a friend one day for what we thought would probably be a nice little walk around the area. We visited the Go-Honden, the main building, and admired all the fox souvenirs. Then we continued up the path, believing that there were more buildings at the end of theSenbon Torii.
The first thing a new visitor should know is that even if you aren’t going far onto the Fushimi Inari grounds, you are still going up. Be prepared to climb plenty of stairs and walk up an incline. We passed a few small restaurants selling themed dishes (Inari sushi and Kitsune (fox) udon, for some) and plenty of smaller prayer areas with tiny torii stacked around them.
It will take even the quickest climber half an hour to reach the Yotsutsuji intersection. This is the point where many visitors aim for, as the views of Kyoto are lovely, and honestly, after seeing the trail splinter off into so many different directions, we ourselves were considering turning back. We did continue on, though, and eventually the trail did settle into a circular route up the mountain and around the summit of Mount Inari. Late afternoon is a great time to return from a hike, as the sunset views are beautiful, but take care to give yourself plenty of time to descend before night falls. There are also no more restaurants for tired travellers beyond Yotsutsuji intersection, but some vending machines can be found along the way. Come prepared – as you climb, the prices of the machines increase!
Translation - Chinese 千本鸟居
伏见稻荷大社是供奉稻米之神 ﹣ 稻荷的神社。而狐狸是稻荷的象征物。听说全日本有超过三万座其他神社，然而伏见稻荷大社是当中最为人熟悉的。稻荷也是商业贩卖的守护神，因此在大社内的每一个鸟居都是由不同企业捐赠的，所以在鸟居上会刻上捐赠公司的名字及年份。
