Categories: Historic Sites, Nature & Parks, Tourist Spots
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.
