Ni no Torii (The One Pillar Torii), Sanno-jinja Shrine山王神社 二の鳥居(一本柱鳥居)

Other Historic Site/Building

The atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki City in 1945. Sanno-jinja Shrine, located on high ground around 900 meters southeast of the center of the blast, was seriously damaged, and the main hall was destroyed without a trace. The One Pillar Torii gate stands on the path leading to the shrine. Originally four torii gates stood here, but only half of this particularly gate survived the blast and stands today. The gate speaks of the menace of nuclear weapons.

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.
