Nagasaki Peace Memorial Statue

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. "
