    Nagasaki Pref. Nagasakishi Funadaikumachi 3-1
    This is a Castella shop of long standing which was established in 1624. This Castella is characterized by its fluffy texture and the dough is made with carefully selected raw materials without using additives. The contrast with the texture of the granulated sugar laid on the bottom is also unique to the Fukusaya store. The current head office in Funadaiku Town was built in the early Meiji period. The charming store’s appearance also merits a visit. The nearest station is Shiambashi, a tram station.

    Of all the castella in Japan, Fukusayas castella, ranks top 1 on my list. But if you love chocolate+walnuts+raisins in a moisty, soft, fragrant cake, then the Hollander Cake is a must. When I went...

Nagasaki Areas


This hidden corner of the country is rural Japan at its best, where underground activity is to thank for active volcanoes and bubbling natural hot springs along the Shimabara Peninsula as well as the crystal clear waters of the Goto Islands off the west coast. Less well known than Hiroshima’s Peace Memorial Park, Nagasaki commemorates its own past at the Nagasaki Peace Park, which sits alongside the charming Meganebashi stone bridge and a mix of religious buildings with beautiful architecture, such as the Zen Buddhist Sofukuji Temple, the Confucian Shrine, and the Oura Christian Church.
