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.

It was really necessary. It is a very special place to admire nature and enjoy the tranquility provided by this place. Thank you. I was able to live many emotions at the same time, you look at the sky and feel something puzzling, one of the best places this city has
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.
