A grim reminder...

This was a very touching and sad visit. I won't attempt to describe it here. Suffice to say...visit it if you can.

Must see this as part of the visit to The Memorial Hall and Peace precinct. Very Moving and makes you reflect on the wastefulness and stupidity of war.

Was in Nagasaki and decided to visit the Atomic Peace Park location which has the Peace Park, Museum and Hypocenter near each other. Coming in on a cruise, we decided to make our own way there. It was easy so do not use the cruise tour which cost a bomb. Take the tram. Many bought the 1 day ticket but... More

It is a must place to visit when you are in Nagasaki. However, it may not be suitable for young kids as some... More

People of nagasaki are awesome people. Please look for this in the museum at the basement level. Bring flowers or prayers. Very heart warming.

This sobering memorial is attached to the museum. Go through the memorial and then upstairs to see where the pillars are above ground. There is an infinity pool that has a light for each of the victims. Don't miss this memorial if you are at the museum.

Being a US Marine, I had reservations about visiting this memorial as I look like a US Marine. My good friend, that is Japanese, told me no problem. So we went. He was correct. This visit really made me realize how it was NOT the people of Japan, and USA, that went to war. It was the "leaders" of our... More

It's good to do this along with the other sites. A very peaceful and tranquil place. Words can't really adequately explain this place or the emotions that are felt.
