Our first stop was Nagasaki Peace Park.
|There are lots of statues and sculptures in the park, many of which were donated by other countries.|
|These are the ruins of a prison which was destroyed by the impact of the bomb. The Japanese staff, and prisoners from Japan, China, and Korea, were all killed instantly.|
|Ground zero in the Nagasaki Peace Park. It was snowing on and off all day.|
The Peace Memorial Museum is a great place to learn a lot, and a must-see for anyone visiting Nagasaki, in my opinion. However, you definitely feel a little drained after going there. We had lunch, and chose a more lighthearted place to visit in the afternoon: Glover Garden.
|We were greeted by plenty of these guys!|

|Glover's house. I can see how this kind of place could inspire a story as great as Madame Butterfly, can't you?|
|Another huge house in Glover Garden.|
|Lovely illuminations - it would have been nice to sit down, if only it hadn't been so cold!|
