    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 restaurant’s signature creamy and flavorful soup broth is made by boiling two to three whole chickens as well as pork and chicken bones for three to four hours. The restaurant’s building is five stories tall. The fifth floor is the actual restaurant, offering customers a superb view. The second floor is a museum which presents the history of champon. The first floor is a shop.

    As this is an iconic dish in Nagasaki so its one of those must try if you are in the region but I left thinking what’s the fuss all about. Firstly, I would not say the noodle is bad but to rate it...

    A castella cake specialty shop located on the hill road leading to the popular Glover Garden in Nagasaki City, Nagasaki Prefecture. Moist Nagasaki castella, made with just sugar, flour, eggs, rice syrup, and granulated sugar is a popular and staple Nagasaki souvenir. In addition to standard plain, Seifudo sells a variety of castella flavors, including cheese, chocolate, and Earl Grey (all popular with students on school strips and women). The shop’s frozen castella, only available from fall to spring, has a more mature flavor that goes great with wine.

    カステラのパサパサ感が嫌な人でも、ここのカステラはしっとりしていて食べやすい。ちゃんと試食して好きな味を決めてから買えるので安心。自分はチーズとアールグレイを購入。値段もリーズナブルで、開店直後やったから店員さんと話しながら食べながら..ホンマにいい店員さんで観光客にもいい情報をくれる。試食できるのでお土産に失敗しません。

    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...

    "A Japanese curry restaurant located in Yorozuya-machi, Nagasaki City. The restaurant's signature ""Yugetsu Curry"" has been a customer favorite for more than half a century. The mild flavor comes from a blend of spices which hasn't been changed since the restaurant's doors first opened, and vegetables stewed until they dissolve into the orange colored curry."

They provide Chinese dishes such as special champon and ""sara udon"" (plate udon noodles), a la carte dishes and rice dishes. Among them, you can choose from between thin, medium and thick noodle sizes for the sara udon."

Nagasaki Main 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.
