Here are photos from several visits to Nagasaki, Japan, on multiple cruise lines where I was a speaker. Nagasaki was the city where an Atomic Bomb was dropped on August 9, 1945, the second of two bombs dropped in Japan in an effort to bring about the end of World War II. Nagasaki was the back-up target for the bomb; Kokura was the primary target, but its target location was visually impaired by smoke.More information about the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki can be found here on Wikipedia.
I’ve been asked many times from people all over the world, “Where is your favorite place to visit?” My answer is typically that there are several places, and Nagasaki is certainly one of my top places. I love meandering through the Peace Park; strolling through some of the winding city streets, and enjoying the impressive views in and from Glover Garden.
