Nagasaki Holidays

don't miss

Huis Ten Bosch theme park, with its recreated Dutch houses, canals, windmills and gardens.

Buy Nagasaki vidro glass, Koga Ningyo handmade dolls, Hata kites and Okawachiyama porcelain for exquisite souvenirs.

Try Castella sponge cake, champon noodles, Shippoku cuisine and local beef – Nagasaki’s fusion food.

Be fascinated by Nagasaki, which was for two centuries Japan’s main link with the outside world, with only Dutch and Chinese traders allowed access. See their influence in the city’s Chinatown and Dejima Dutch trading area, or visit Catholic Ōura Church and 19th-century Glover Garden, built by foreigners when Japan’s isolation came to an end.

Tour Nagasaki’s WWII peace memorials, tributes to the victims of the atomic bomb, or explore its shrines, beaches and museums. Festivals are a hoot here, so catch the excitement of the Tall Ships Festival, Dragon Boat Races, Lantern Festival and the Nagasaki Kunchi, a huge celebration of dance.

On your cruise to Nagasaki get the creeps at eerie Hashima Island, an abandoned mining settlement used in the James Bond movie Skyfall, or ride a gondola to Mount Inasa to admire jaw-dropping night-time views.
