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.

  • I visited with four of my friends, but when I arrived, I couldn't help feeling the silence and deep sorrow. It is a park where you can feel the preciousness of peace naturally.

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.
