Judging from the gray color and apparent composition, that arch looks like its made out of the same stuff from STARGATE.

i spent time in Japan in the Marines in the 70's. it's called a 'torii' (gate). . .among other things, it symbolizes the gateway between Heaven and Earth. the explosion was an airburst around 1,500 feet above the ground. (cont)

(cont) if the torii was directly below, it would have been 'safe', as was a building (still preserved) in Hiroshima.

the earthquake never hit Nagasaki. This is an internet hoax. The earthquake was way north

it's not the material,. it's the shape. water passes freely through the openings in the arch, leaving it standing due to minimal surface friction, same thing with an explosive force.
