Overview of Nagasaki

“Remembering History to not repeat it.”

Historically regarded as Japan’s window on the world, Nagasaki is one of the earliest recorded prefectures that maintained contact with Europe in the beginning of the 16th century. This contact heavily influenced the food and architecture within the prefecture. History also remembers Nagasaki as the 2nd target of atomic bombing. In remembrance, the Nagasaki Peace Park was created to remember this horrible event in history and show the dangers and aftermath of nuclear warfare. The Peace Park stands as a beacon of hope for peace with sculptures donated by foreign and local artists and contains the Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum.
