The Entrance, sending out peace from Nagasaki
Nagasaki Peace Museum is a “Peace and Culture” oriented museum.
Through the beauty of nature, children’s smiling faces, and music we can fully appreciate the wonderfulness of peace.
The Nagasaki “Gem Fire” Movement was started in August 1995. The idea was proposed by the famous Japanese musician, Sada Masashi. With Japanese volunteers, he continues spreading the movement’s message to this day. This building was established in 2003, using donations from many people.
At present, people in the world suffer from many kinds of problems, such as disputes, environmental destruction, poverty and starvation.
We strongly believe that the first step is for children to be able to live in peace with smiling faces.
