Hiroshima and Nagasaki are the only cities in the world that were attacked by nuclear bombs. This tragedy left a deep imprint on the post-war development of cities and the formation of their images. More than 70 years after the bombing and the cardinal change of identity, Hiroshima and Nagasaki became modern Japanese cities with high tourism potential. The purpose of this study is to identify the features of the positioning of modern images of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in the media, and to determine their conformity with the images constructed by the city authorities. The main objectives of the study are to describe the post-war images of the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, highlight the paths of their development formed by the city authorities, analyze newspaper articles and print sources to determine the modern image of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, as well as determine the conformity of the images of cities with the directions of urban policy in the formation of urban images . In order to study news sources (online publications) and print sources the frequency analysis method by MeCab program in the Python development environment was used. Articles of major Japanese newspapers (Tokyo Shimbun, Asahi Shimbun, Mainichi Shimbun) were used as news sources, as well as texts of tourist guides and peace declarations of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were used.
