Peace Park

Prayer for the atomic bomb victims, an oath for lasting peace.

Area Map

Peace Park
It’s a park constructed on a hill to the north of the ground zero of the atomic bombing of Nagasaki, on August 9, 1945. On August 9 every year people from all over the world gather at the park to join the memorial service and pray for the eternal world peace. In front of the entrance is the Peace Memorial Statue; the right arm pointing to the sky means “the menace of the atomic bombs,” the horizontally extended left arm means “the peace on the ground,” and the closed eyes mean “the peace for the victims.” The Peace Fountain in front of the statue is for the consolation of the spirits of the victims who died while seeking for water. When you come to the park, you can never miss to visit Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum. It'll give you a good opportunity to objectively and scientifically think about peace.
