Nagasaki Peace Memorial Statue平和祈念像

Other Historic Site/Building

"This bronze statue is about three minutes on foot from the Matsuyama-machi Streetcar Peace Park Stop, in the Prayer Zone of Nagasaki Peace Park at the north of Nagasaki Station. The statue was created by Seibo Kitamura, a sculptor from Nagasaki Prefecture. It was erected in 1955, ten years after an atomic bomb was dropped on the city. The statue has a variety of symbolism: the right hand refers to the threat of nuclear weapons, the left hand symbolizes peace, and the closed eyes encourage the visitor to ""pray for the repose of the atomic bomb victims."" Every August 9, Peace Memorial Ceremony is held in the square in front of the statue. "

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.
