Nagasaki Peace Park

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 14 October 2015 in Cityscape & Urban.

We have just ascended from street level to the Peace Park. This is my second visit to try for some decent photos. Across the street, on the corner, is a convenience store which is part of the Family Mart chain. Convenience stores in Japan are clean, well lighted and completely devoid of the feeling you are about to get mugged or worse. They also sell rice balls, those brilliant inventions, and bottled tea. This makes a great breakfast when you are on the go.

I tried the buffet, at my hotel, the first morning in Nagasaki. It was good but had way too much food to try and way too many people.

My Spotlighted Images

I'll be busy the next few weeks. Commenting will be spotty at best.

Nagasaki brings to mind the history of the moment in which one was the most brutal attack against another nation. That view is beautiful and gives hope, you do not need anything like that ever experience.

I never tire of seeing all those beautiful blossoms scattered round the cityscape. They soften the harshest building lines.

The beauty of nature pleases the eye and makes a wonderful contrast to the rigid architecture of this place ... the flowers and tree in the foreground are just wonderful !!! Splendid image ...
