Nagai Takashi Memorial Museum Nyokodo

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.
