Nagasaki Peace Park, Nagasaki

4.2
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.

  • It can be easily reached by trams within a 5-7 mins walk. Try the icecream there. It was made to a lovely rose. It has much historical significance. Not many tourists when we were there. A must visit.  more »
  • Visited when I went to Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum and then went to peace Memorial Park. Just pray for peace but do not. Was at the monument from countries around the world.

  • It was a peace park. Amazing history! I enjoyed it. The museum was okay. It seemed to take a lot longer than i had expected. The most interesting part was the wnd with the bios of the people involved with the A bomb.
  • This is a place I would recommend to just about anyone. You will really rethink war and see it in a different light.
  • “Lest we forget” There was really good explanation of what was displayed and why, the explanation of the water fountain was very poignant and serves as a timely reminder that we may never do that again, the fountain also represents the symbol of abundance of water which a lot of people died of thirst and the lack of water, if only the leaders of the world would visit together and see for themselves the catastrophic devastation maybe they'd be inclined to lay down their weapons. I enjoyed a quiet stroll through the gardens and read the plaques. Great visit.
  • This is an giant statute with arms out stretched and a flowing fountain. A good place for some photo shoot and selfie,too. It is a short walk from the Hypo centre.
  • Very large park. Nice place to spend a bit of time
