I never get tired of visiting the Peace Memorial Statue when I'm in Nagasaki. The ten-meter statue evokes such symbolism and meaning as you stand in front and understand what it's saying. The right hand point to the sky (where the bomb came from); the left hand is out-stretched palm down (let's be calm), and the closed eyes and crossed... More

The memorial park in Nagasaki is a place that must be visited if one is a visitor to Nagasaki. The experience of the whole area around the park is moving.

I stayed in the Catholic Youth Centre beside the Catholic Cathedral and found this by accident on a morning walk nearby. Like so much of Nagasaki, it makes you think and ponder how we as humans can do such incredibly evil things to one another.

The Peace Memorial Statue is near the Museum and combined, they are the highlight of a Nagasaki visit. Near the statue is ground zero, where 1000 feet above, the atomic bomb exploded.

Very large, very commanding position and full of meaning and significance. Situated at the end past the central fountain, it is quite magnificent.

This is the main memorial in the Peace Park and well worth seeing. Saw local Japanese children singing hymns under it. Very moving.
