Nagasaki, 12 Dec.

Sanno Shrine (One-Legged Torii Arch & Camphor Trees)

During the atomic bombing of Nagasaki City, one of the torii gates of Sanno Shrine was cut in half by the blast. What remains of the gate continues to stand even today on a single column, a symbol of the resilience of Nagasaki City and its people, even in the face of adversity.

The shrine’s camphor trees were also significantly damaged in the explosion, but with time they began to grow again and are still growing today. Small pieces of broken glass and debris from the atomic blast can still be seen inside the hollow of one of the trees!
