Kiyoshi Tanimoto
was a pastor for the Hiroshima Methodist Church and was not injured by the
atomic bomb. Tanimoto had went to school in the United States and had many
American friends which he spoke to from the beginning of the war. He was at a friend’s
house when the bomb went off. As he saw the explosion, he dove in between two
rocks in a small garden. Startled by what just happened we stood up from the
dust and attempted to figure out what had just happened. He soon began to see destruction
and injured people all around him. He feels guilt for being one of the few
people who was uninjured. He began helping many people who were injured out of
the rubble and destruction. He seemed to assist the injured more than any of
the other main characters. It almost seemed as if he was trying to prove his loyalty
to Japan since he had ties to the United States. (Hersey, 25-49)
