Nagasaki Peace Park, Nagasaki

(4.2/5 based on 900+ 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.

  • I've been to the Peace Park in Nagasaki several times, but I never get tired of the experience. As you walk around and see the many statues and sculptures dedicated to peace from other countries, it i...  more »
  • 8/9/1945, it's 11:02. I have become a human experiment differs from the atomic bombing in Hiroshima, 8/6 just three days after Hiroshima-type atomic bomb took place. Or why the United States was hastily dropped a second atomic bomb is obvious. I was wanted and experiment it is differences in the two bombs also wrote. Hiroshima and Nagasaki, happened to be out of clouds was confirmed a test target. It is hope in peace Memorial Park, unfortunately both cities again and not the dropping of the Atomic and hydrogen bombs and nuclear weapons tests. This is where many public (and private) who have died.

  • 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.
