Nagasaki Peace Park, Nagasaki

4.1
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 visiting Nagasaki, this is a must place to go. Combined with the Atomic Bomb Museum, these places will deeply move you. The park is beautifully decorated with a fountain at the south end. In the ...  more »
  • It's a park to reflect on. It is an esplanade with different commemorative sculptures. There's a moat with remnants of how things turned out. He's protected and we have to look for him.

  • I went to see the peace statue of Nagasaki Peace Memorial Park, which is often used in the press. This park was on a hill on the outskirts of Nagasaki. There was a place where a lot of origami cranes were decorated on the side. I was impressed that the origami cranes were folded and decorated continuously. The park was decorated with statues sent from all over the world, and the surrounding map showed the hypocenter and the facilities that were there. It makes you feel pious.

  • No words to describe it, a must see place of interest for history enthusiasts. I left the site knowing a little more about the events of that day. I will comment on the cleanliness of the area and, very quiet of the time of visiting, huge crowd tourist crowds, better to come in the evening if you want a solo picture with the memorial statue.
  • A lovely park with nice ambience and several monuments that were gifts from many communities whether national or international to Nagasaki. It's good for a peaceful stroll and to visit the nearby atomic bomb museum.
  • Coupled with the Atomic Bomb Museum, this is an educational and sobering place to visit. The city of Nagasaki put a lot of effort into making this memorial. If you visit Nagasaki, plan to spend one to two hours at these two places.
  • Very beautiful place. We were lucky enough to meet a Nagasaki survivor who was holding court near the freedom bell and told his remarkable story via a translator.
  • It’s a park build on 1950 after the atomic Bomb in 1945. It’s nice place, clean and well organised. Big status and water fountains. You have to visit both places Peace park and atomic bomb museum to Know the value of peace
