Nagasaki Peace Park, Nagasaki

(4.2/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
Commemorate one of human history's most tragic events at Nagasaki Peace Park, a memorial located at ground zero of the atomic bombing which occurred on August 9, 1945. The site, marked with a black pillar, lies 500 m (1,640 ft) below the point at which the second nuclear weapon dropped on Japan detonated, effectively ending World War II and obliterating the city. The memorial features a 10 m (33 ft) bronze statue, pointing skyward and dedicated to world peace. You'll find numerous plaques donated from countries around the planet, as well as a vault containing the names of the nearly 150,000 victims of the explosion.

  • When I visited, in front of a statue of elementary school was dedicated vows and songs. Of course peace pledge. I think where to go if you came to Nagasaki, but not what is special. Is located on a small hill next to the staircase and equipped escalators minamiyamate in the conservation area of the town, but is useful.

  • Many people had come from around the world. Ladies and gentlemen, is a prayer for peace, was to have highlighted the importance of peace. When you tell the importance of peace, your children, than the Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum reaches soft?

  • Was in Hiroshima before and loved the memorial there. It felt dignified and conceived it well thought out. As with Nagasaki ... I just did not get their approach. While the exihibition itself is great, the museum looks like three different modern buildings misplugged into one. Even the memorial chamber had this weird feeling of a misplaced christian cult church to me. Also the memorial park is just a plain big concrete wasteland. At least it felt that way to me. Maybe I really just did not get what they wanted to show.
  • Great. Kill warmaker ! 99 commemorating the atomic bombing of the city on August 9, 1945 during World War II. It is next to the Atomic Bomb Museum and near the Peace Memorial Hall.
  • A very beautiful, serene park that is truly heart wrenching when you think of the reason this park was built.
  • Very thought provoking and peaceful. Nice place to sit and reflect on the world.
  • Out of the two peace parks, this is my preferred. It is very peaceful and has a better exhibit. Nagasaki is a much pretty city to visit than Hiroshima as well.
