Although it was cold and the Sakura were only just beginning to bloom, this is a beautiful area; a credit to the people of Nagasaki. We went to the Peace Park before the Museum and were very glad we did as we were there at 11.02am when a gentle music is played to commemorate the time the bomb was dropped.... More

This park is about 200m from the epicentre of where the bomb went off. It is to promote peace and contains many interesting statues and a fountain. Interestingly, most of them are from the 1980s when the Cold War was stepping up. People there were very quiet.

A place which was also part of the destruction (a local prison) during the bombing. The statue with the human body, the Budda's face and Jesus's long hair is the main construction of the park. The crafts, donated by several other countries, on the sidewalk of the park, are also worth visting.

The poeace park is up the hill approachable by escalator at two levels and a visit is a must to see how the horrors of bombing were portrayed by sculptures by artists from many countries . Very aesthetically laid in open garden .

I've been to the Peace Park in Nagasaki several times, but I never get tired of the experience. As you walk around and see the many statues and sculptures dedicated to peace from other countries, it is very moving. The Peace Statue itself should be a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its deep symbolism and meaning. I love to... More

Close to the Atomic Bomb display and reflects the world response to the Atomic devastation. Good to visit on a spring day with the blossom out.
