The Peace Fountain reminds us of the tragic scene unfolded shortly after America dropped the

The plutonium atomic bomb exploded about 500m over the central monument at 11:02 a.m.

on August 9, 1945.   The most part of Nagasaki was destroyed, and a tremendous number of

lives were lost. And about 70,000 of Nagasaki’s 240,000 residents died instantly, and up to

60,000 were injured.
