Nagai Takashi Memorial Museum (Nyokodo) (ナガサキシナガイタカシキネンカン)

  • 24273views

Dr. Takashi Nagai, a Roman Catholic, gave this tiny house a name inspired by the Bible quote “love thy neighbor as thyself” (“nyoko” means “as thyself”). He lost his wife when the atomic bomb fell and he himself succumbed to leukemia, but that did not stop him from providing aid to other victims. He calls for peace in his many writings.
The adjacent memorial hall used to be a library he set up with his own money. The doctor’s photos and personal items are now on display.
