Peace Park

A visit to the Peace Park is an absolute must, it is more intensive than the site in Hiroshima. Once you are there, you are amazed at the size of this monument. The right arm points upwards: The misfortune came from there. The left arm is stretched out as a gesture of peace. The eyes are closed in prayer for the dead. It’s huge. Together with the Atomic Bomb Museum, you should plan half a day to visit this park

“Fat Man” was the codename for the nuclear bomb that was detonated over the Japanese city of Nagasaki by the United States on 9 August 1945
