9 Aug

As I mentioned last Tuesday, August 6th was the sixty-eighth anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, Japan.

And now today (2013 August 9th) is the same anniversary of the atomic bombing of 長崎 (Nagasaki, Japan).

As I mentioned in my post about Hiroshima, the famous 原爆ドーム (Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum) is in Hiroshima.

Nagasaki has a peace memorial to remember the war, honor the victims and hope for peace, too.
It’s in 「平和公園」 (“Peace Park”).

The Peace Memorial in Nagasaki’s Peace Park.

The atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki on 1945 August 9th at 11:02AM (Japan time). So, there will be a moment of silence in Japan at 11:02AM today just as there was last Tuesday for Hiroshima.
