Fist time in Nagasaki

1111

On Thursday morning, I boarded the JR 1.5 hour express train from Hakata train station to Nagasaki, a beautiful port city on the west of Kyushu island. On August 9 at 11:02 am 1945 when the atomic bomb was dropped in Nagasaki, hundreds of thousands of people suffered and were directly affected. With donations given, the “Fountain of Peace” was built for remembrance. It is sad that the shape of the fountain is in shape of a pair of wings symbolizing peace. The fountain was finished on August 1969 but was reconstructed on August 1985 and currently has a diameter of 18 meters and height of 1.5 – 6 meters.
