Little Japan

The Little Japan vehicle was developed so that its creator Kazuya Kanemaru and any volunteer could travel to towns and villages on it. They were searching for a place to launch the attached balloon that was shaped like Little Boy, the nuclear weapon dropped on Hiroshima, on August 6, 1945.
