The story of Dr. Nagai is very noble and inspiring. The video presentation depicting the life and works of Dr. Nagai is a must see. The message really is nobody wins in war.

This small musuem is only a short walk from the Peace Park and worth the Y100 entry. We watched 2 videos and read about Takasisan's life. A wise man indeed.
