    Had the stone made of black granite in the Nagasaki Peace Park. Hypocenter, 0/1945 (1945), August 9, 11: fat man plutonium type atomic bomb dropped by the 02 U.S. Army bomber b-29 boxcar exploded at over 500 metres and was near the area, was destroyed. City of Nagasaki at warring States period start isolation times in the NANBAN trade prospered until the end of the year of the victims of 150000 people killed instantly, leaving ruins. Had a uranium-based atomic bomb of Hiroshima for 1.5 times the destructive power is not the whole city is gone, certainly in relation to topography and the dropping point different from Hiroshima and Nagasaki plutonium type atomic bomb. The destructive power of radiation now leave its scars still look obvious. Wood originally invested in this area indicates that built or was it is pasted on the current black granite, 0/1968 (1968). Is so fast and furious protests made due to mother and child statue was erected as an a-bomb 50th anniversary monument Business Park to remove a central monument, erected to plans to plan the next year to its present location was built the statue of mother and child. When you build this plan was conceived like any ideas or honest tilted his head want to be. The dropping point of the atomic bomb took the lives of 150000 people represented in monuments.... It's good? Whether or not as indicative of the wake-up call for the Memorial and memorial services, and use of nuclear weapons and a permanent monument to play really well to the untrained eye is obvious. Hiroshima hypocenter says "place" by the Board; Because no translation etc. needs to be monuments in Nagasaki it needs.

    The place where the damage done by the bomb was the greatest and where the consequences were the worst. It is designed as a small ceremonial park with a memorial.  more »
