  • When I visited The Peace Park and tried to turn back, I found it and stopped by. It was across the road of Peace Park. There is a prayer hall in the back of the parking lot. There were a lot of offerings such as flowers in the prayer hall. I prayed and later.

  • Sympathetic, powerful, disturbing and compelling in equal measure. An absolute must for all to visit in order to understand our shared past in order that it never ever be repeated.
  • Impressive underground construction for a very impressive experience. To me this place was mainly about testimonies about people who have been through this. Watching these people (videos) and reading others was is quite heartbreaking. At the same there is a paper crane workshop right in the middle, full of colors and kids having fun. It’s another main aspect of the bombings I discovered in both Nagasaki and Hiroshima, how Japanese people are turning these disasters into both a indelible memory and optimistic lesson for the future.
