Nagasaki Peace Park is a memorial park built on the hills north of the Atomic Bomb Center in order to pray for world peace. There are various facilities such as the Peace Memorial Statue and the Peace Memorial Hall. The blue peace praying statue is pointing to the sky with the right hand, and the left hand is stretched to the side, indicating that there is no threat to the world to enjoy peace.
Especially like the buildings of Nagasaki, built on the hills above the sea, patchwork.
Nagasaki Peace Park, the time here is quiet
Japan Hiroshima and Nagasaki, two cities that were once destroyed by the US atomic bomb. Today, Hiroshima and Nagasaki have a Peace Park. The first thing I saw at the entrance to the park was the symbolic Peace of Peace in the Peace Park, a male peace god. On the right hand, the index finger is pointing to the sky, indicating that the atomic bomb has fallen. The right hand is flat and the palm is facing down, wishing the world Antai. World Peace.
The peaceful spring on the side of the park means giving a glass of water to the tragic souls killed in the disaster and praying for their blessings. At the same time, in order to pray for a worldly peace. The ever-changing fountain takes the shape of a dove of peace and flies, and at the same time has the shape of a crane, symbolizing the Nagasaki Port, which is known as the crane port. It is said that many people died at the time because there was no water. There was a pool under the sculpture.
There are various sculptures everywhere in the park, which are presented by governments to express their hope for peace and blessings for world peace. There are many in Europe, many in Asia and Africa, including a "peace" sculpture given by China. It is said that there is also the same paragraph in Fuxingmen, Beijing. On both sides of the statue, there is a thousand paper crane tower. There are thousands of paper cranes, water and prayers. There is an old legend in Japan. If someone folds a thousand paper cranes, the crane will fulfill his wish, like a long life, or recover from a serious illness. In Asia, people with a thousand paper cranes can think of a good wish, so the paper crane has become a special occasion gift.
To Nagasaki, I always remembered that "Nagasaki is raining today." Nagasaki is a seaport city. The maritime climate caused time and rain. We even drenched a sun rain in Nagasaki. After a few minutes, it turned fine.
During my visit to Nagasaki, Japan, I happened to stop at Nagasaki Peace Park. Nagasaki was one of the two cities in Japan that got atomic bomb dropped during world war two, this peace park is built as a memorial to the victims and memorial in keeping peace. Hence the name peace park. Wonderful place. #wintergetaway
