Peace Fountain at Nagasaki Peace Park
Peace Fountainreminds us of the tragic scene unfolded
shortly after America dropped the Atomic Bomb on Nagasaki
at 11:02 am on Aug. 09, 1945.
With the completion of the Peace Fountain on Aug. 3, 1969,
a monument inscribed with an epitaph was constructed.
Many people were burned deeply and died, crying and
groaning for water.
When people recovered their peaceful life in 1965, a
campaign for a Peace Fountain was launched.
Recorded on the monument are the name of the founder
including the People’s Congress for Prohibition of Nuclear
Weapons and Promotion of Peace and the Committee for
the Construction of the Peace Fountain.
Part of the epitaph reads as follows:
To those who visit this place today.
May you offer prayers to console the souls of those
killed and promote peace.
