Nagasaki is the capital city of Nagasaki Prefecture on the island of Kyushu, Japan. Nagasaki has a vast history of a nuclear explosion during World War II. Its history bought us goosebumps, but their hard work and the way they progressed after that, is an inspiration. It is built on a natural harbor with buildings on the traces if hills, which gives breathtaking views all around. I have learned a lot from Nagasaki and its surroundings. The people, their culture and their positive attitude towards life are worth learning.
Places to visit
- Hiroshima Island
It is also known as Gunkanjima after the nuclear attack was destroyed. The parts of it bring, and Hiroshima Island brings a shiver down my spinal cord, it is an abandoned island. Nobody can understand the pain those people had gone through, but the experience on that island was enough to know the conditions.
- Mount Inasa
According to us, it has the prettiest view of the whole city or Nagasaki, with parks and playground, which gave me immense peace and cleansed my aura with its positive environment. And it can be accessed by cable car or bus.
Glover Garden is a park in Nagasaki built for Thomas Blake Glover, who was a Scottish merchant and contributed to the modernization of the city. The garden was planned and designed beautifully that it made me want to live and spend the rest of my life there.
- Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum
This museum took me down to the days of World War II. It is a theme museum based on the atomic bombing by the USA in 1945. It contains pictures, artifacts, clippings, and remains of a nuclear attack. It gave me the scary experience of the nightmare which those people lived in those days.
Any history and modern architecture lover can get lost in the vast and deep history of this small and little yet amazingly beautiful place. And the spring season is the best time to visit this lovely place.
