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.

  • I went to 180111. You can go from Matsuyama-machi station of the tram in front of the right eyes, so without hesitation. Be equipped with stairs and escalators, was very helpful. Even an elderly person to go I was. It is safe because it was set up some toilet. What you see in the peace Park in the long peace statue quickly that ends during the tour.

  • This is a beautiful memorial park. Well kept up and it has a great purpose. I Would recommend to anyone who is able to go.
  • Surreal place. Reminding us about the atrocities of war and the power of weapons of mass destruction. Peaceful place for us to reflect and treasure on things we have and tale for granted. Must see
  • I like this park it is situated at the hill top... You can see the very beautiful scenery of Nagasaki City and the place is also like a museum it has historical artifacts just lying around the park... This place is full of history... And this place is a great reminder for the world on how terrible Nuclear weapons are...
  • Beautiful place to see after Atomic bomb museum. Beautiful plants to see in different colors. I went there in November, i think the season is fall, but i still got a chance to see colorful plants. You'll find there a verumy big statue that means peace after war. Nice olqce to see in Nagasaki
  • An awe inducing statue! I really like the feeling of the park that it brings! If you ever are in the Nagasaki area, I would recommend coming to Peace Park and the Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum as well.
