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. With our international travel planner, Nagasaki attractions like Nagasaki Peace Park can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

A friend and I visited this small, tranquil park on a hot, humid October morning. It was high on our list of Nagasaki's peace-related attractions, instituted since an atomic bomb was dropped nearby...

No words to describe it, a must see place of interest for history enthusiasts. I left the site knowing a little more about the events of that day. I will comment on the cleanliness of the area and, very quiet of the time of visiting, huge crowd tourist crowds, better to come in the evening if you want a solo picture with the memorial statue.
A lovely park with nice ambience and several monuments that were gifts from many communities whether national or international to Nagasaki. It's good for a peaceful stroll and to visit the nearby atomic bomb museum.
