There basically isn't anything to see here other than half of a torii, but you can see the scorchmarks from the bomb up close and really imagine what it must have been like. A different experience from the museum. Afterwards, take the streetcar to Urakami...More

The famed stone, one legged Tori Gate is all that survives from the atomic blast. The gate has been kept in its post-explosive state as a reminder of the destructive force of the bomb.

Live evidence of the A-bomb. It is artistic, and it is superior.

Walking up the steep staircase and seeing the one-legged torii gate was most impressive - on several levels. The literal strength of the stone structure and the resilience of the people of Nagasaki as they have rebuilt a beautiful, prosperous city around this gate. Make...More

Do this as part of a walking tour around the area. There are several other historical pieces around here. pretty cool stop along the way. Make sure to visit the small shrine behind this, there are two giant trees that survived the blast as well.
