Nagai Takashi Memorial Museum Nyokodo長崎市永井隆記念館・如己堂

Memorial Hall

This museum commemorates Dr. Takashi Nagai, who contributed to the rebuilding of Nagasaki and advocated eternal peace through brotherly love after losing his wife and suffering illness due to the atomic bombing. The Nyoko-do is a small house that was built by Urakami Catholics and served as the doctor’s sickroom and writing room before his death. The memorial hall displays writings and other articles that belonged to the doctor as well as a rosary used by his wife that was burned in the explosion.

Nagasaki Main Areas

This hidden corner of the country is rural Japan at its best, where underground activity is to thank for active volcanoes and bubbling natural hot springs along the Shimabara Peninsula as well as the crystal clear waters of the Goto Islands off the west coast. Less well known than Hiroshima's Peace Memorial Park, Nagasaki commemorates its own past at the Nagasaki Peace Park, which sits alongside the charming Meganebashi stone bridge and a mix of religious buildings with beautiful architecture, such as the Zen Buddhist Sofukuji Temple, the Confucian Shrine, and the Oura Christian Church.
