It offers year-round seasonal tastes of Isahaya blessed with seafood and mountain vegetables. Isahaya grilled eel is characterized by being steamed in a double-bottomed rakuyaki ware vessel after being grilled, and you can enjoy its enchanting plumpness. Their ""una-zen"" (eel rice dish) served in the same earthenware is highly recommended. Their pressed sushi ""Isahaya sushi,"" which is a combination of sushi rice with shiitake mushrooms, dried gourd and other ingredients topped with grilled eel, is the best choice for a souvenir that cannot be tasted anywhere else."

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.
