Nagasaki Peace Park is a park located in Nagasaki, Japan, 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.HistoryEstablished in 1955, and near to the hypocenter of the explosion, remnants of a concrete wall of Urakami Cathedral can still be seen. Urakami Cathedral was the grandest church in east Asia at the time. At the park's north end is the 10-meter-tall Peace Statue created by sculptor Seibo Kitamura of Nagasaki Prefecture. The statue's right hand points to the threat of nuclear weapons while the extended left hand symbolizes eternal peace. The mild face symbolizes divine grace and the gently closed eyes offer a prayer for the repose of the bomb victims' souls. The folded right leg and extended left leg signify both meditation and the initiative to stand up and rescue the people of the world. The statue represents a mixture of western and eastern art, religion, and ideology. Installed in front of the statue is a black marble vault containing the names of the atomic bomb victims and survivors who died in subsequent years. A plaque by the Peace Statue is titled Words from the Sculptor and reads:Find out how to plan Nagasaki trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.
Nagasaki Park Reviews
長崎市役所に用事で立ち寄ったとき、「長崎平和公園」と間違えて訪れました。 園内は広くて、坂も多いです。 無料の小さな動物園もあり、地元の子供連れのファミリーが、これもノンビリと散策していました。エサをやったりすることもでき、古いですが動物の種類もまぁまぁでした。 more »When I stopped by Nagasaki City Hall on business, I took the mistake of "Nagasaki Peace Park". The park is large and has many slopes. There was also a free small zoo, which was also a family with local children strolling around. It was also possible to feed, and although it was old, the kind of animal was also good.
이 공원에서 잠시 쉬고 있으면 힐링하는 기분이에요. 이름도 나가사키 공원이라러 나가사키를 상징하는 공원이라고 생각해요. more »If you're taking a break from this park, you'll feel like you're healing. I think it's nagasaki park because it's also a park that represents Nagasaki.
Increased compared to the past, and also different kinds of animals, was also beautiful.
Mini zoo is feeding can do. Ohagi and Udon eaten at snack stands, and play nice kids and staff Clerk would eat at two menu also don't count.
