Peace Fountain at Nagasaki Peace Park

 

Peace Fountain reminds 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.
