I went to Sanno jinja after my visit to peace Park. At the peace park, I met a group of teachers who were guiding the Japanese students to go through a history trail which required them to visit Sanno jinja and one legged torii as...More

I fail to see the need to make this a major tourist site! It survived the bomb, but that is all the good you can say about it. You will see far too many gates in Japan that are far superior to this one in...More

It’s a lasting reminder of the atomic bomb. I’m not sure of its exact distance from the hypocenter. Interesting to see but there isn’t anything else there.

Not much to see here, but an interesting survivor of the atomic bomb. We were nearby so we diverted to see it.

In that it is a place of reverence. Not really close to the other attractions, walk up, up, uphill and then a climb up the stairs. Kind of tucked out of the way. You'd never see it unless you chose to visit it.

It's interesting that it's there and it survived the bombing but it's just a Torii. You can do a lot of Nagasaki in a day and it's small enough to walk between most places. Use the readily available tourist maps and see this passing by...More

We walked the few blocks from the trolley station to see this. You can get a photo from the bottom of the many stairs or make the climb. I would call this a must see site but it is unique.

Youll see the photos in the museum so worth going to have a look at this monument now surrounded by the suburbs of Nagasaki.

This was close to my airbnb, so I ventured out to see this unique landmark. One thing I'm MOST impressed with, about Nagasaki, is their use of signage to point out various landmarks. In all my world travels, no city has been more informative than...More
