Ground Zero & the Atomic Bomb Museum
Nagasaki was opened to foreign trade in 1570, and flourished as the sole portal through which Western culture entered Japan during the isolation period. Along with Christian culture, foreign learning found its way into the country—particularly in the fields of shipbuilding, mining, printing and medicine. In addition to its many historic places, the city and its surrounding area are also very rich in scenic beauty. Today you will visit Nagasaki Peace Park, created in remembrance of the atomic bomb explosion on August 9, 1945. Conclude with a trip to the Atomic Bomb Museum before returning to the pier.
