    Nagasaki Pref. Nagasakishi Matsugaemachi 4-5
    This Chinese restaurant is famous for inventing Nagasaki champon as well as sara udon, two distinct dishes involving noodles with various toppings.

The first floor is a shop.

    This is a tourist trap and we fell for it as we were staying in the Crowne Plaza opposite. OK the view from the restaurant was great, once we had queued, been given a table and then moved to get the...

    "A bite sized gyoza pot sticker restaurant located in Motoshikkui-machi, Nagasaki City. Since the restaurant first opened its doors in 1955, its hearty, crispy, bite sized gyoza filled with onions, Asian chives, and garlic have been loved as a local Nagasaki specialty dish.

    Nagasaki Pref. Nagasakishi Shinchimachi 11-14
    A restaurant serving chanpon noodles and sara udon (fried udon noodles with various toppings) located in the Nagasaki Shinchi Chinatown in Nagasaki City, Nagasaki Prefecture. Customers love the shop’s finer-than-usual sara udon noodles, and their crispness goes perfectly with heaping portions of various toppings. A simple and unique broth made with just chicken bones is what makes the shop’s equally popular chanpon so delicious. The plump noodles soaked in broth and crisp sautéed vegetables provide delightful textures. The shop also sells various products which can be brought home as souvenirs.

    This Chinese restaurant is located in the China-street, and apparently quite popular among locals and tourists as we were told that advance booking is a must. Fortunately after a bit of persuasion...

Nagasaki Areas

around-area-map

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.
