A wise man

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.

If you've heard about Dr. Takashi Nagai, or even if you've never heard of him, you owe it to yourself to visit his museum. It's within easy walking distance of the Peace Park and it's not very large - you can see the exhibits in 20 minutes (longer if you watch the movies). The inside of the museum goes over... More

It costs 100 yen and takes about 30 minutes to go through. It's just one room. They have lots of information in English. It tells the story of a doctor and his contributions during and after the war as well as his struggle with leukemia. I enjoyed it.

I have never heard of this person until I saw an exhibit about him at the Atomic Bomb Museum, and I'm so glad that I came across this small museum between the Peace Park and Urakami Cathedral. For only 100 yen, you can easily spend an hour in this small museum is about his life and his countless, selfless contributions... More

Nyokodo, literally meaning "the chamber for those who love others like their loved ones", is really a tiny space where Dr Takashi Nagai spent his last couple of years while suffering the severe radiation side effects. The small museum next to it exhibits his books and stuff. I couldn't further imagine how he was shocked to learn his lovely wife... More

On my way to Urakami Cathedral I visited this little museum in memory of Dr Takashi Nagai, author of 'The Bells of Nagasaki'. Radiologist by profession, Dr Nagai survived the Second Atomic Bomb dropped on Nagasaki in 1945, he dedicated last years of his life to treating orphans and victims of the explosion. Already a nationally recognised figure he also... More
