Nagasaki Peace Memorial Park was established in 1955 around site of epicenter of the blast from the atomic bomb dropped on Nagasaki on August 9, 1945. The park contains a commemorative tablet marking the site of detonation, a museum containing exhibits about the atomic bombing, the Fountain of Peace, and the famous peace statue built by Seibo Kitamura. The statue's every element from the hands and face to how the figure is sitting has a specific meaning for being that way: the right hand pointing up towards the atomic bomb, the left hand pointing towards peace, the bent right leg symbolizes meditation, the bent left leg symbolizes a need to stand up against war and fight for peace, and the gently closed eyes is meant to offer prayers for repose for the victim's souls.
