About The Nagasaki Peace Park
The Nagasaki Peace Park commemorates the atomic bombing of this Japanese city by American forces in World War II. This occurred on 9 August 1945, three days after the bombing of Hiroshima.
Approximately 74,000 people were killed and 30% of the city was devastated, with many more suffering the effects of radiation poising for decades later.
Today, the Nagasaki Peace Park houses several monuments relating to this event, including one marking the site of the bomb’s hypocentre.
