Peace Fountain at Nagasaki Peace Park

                                                                                                                                            HOME 

 

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.
