Nagasaki peace park

I will write about Nagasaki in Kyusyu Japan.

This is Nagasaki peace park.

It is dedicated to never repeating tragic war again and wishing for peace on earth. 

And this peace prayer statue was made by Seibo Kitamura, who is a famous sculptor from Nagasaki, in 1945.

It is symbol of God’s love and Buddha’s compassion. 

The right hand shows the wonder of atomic bombs, while the left hand shows peace and the facial expression shows reflection on way happened. 

Many people gather here every August 9 to commemorate the anniversary of the bombing.
