Dejima (Site of the Dejima Dutch Trading Post)出島(出島和蘭商館跡)

Other Historic Site/Building

When the Edo shogunate imposed a policy of national isolation, Dejima became the only window for trade with the West in the nation. The Dutch trading post was moved here from Hirado in 1641. Thereafter, economic and cultural exchange between Japan and Europe took place here for the next 218 years, contributing greatly to the modernization of Japan. After the trading post was closed, the area around the island was filled in and reclaimed; today, however, a project is underway to restore the island to its historic appearance, providing visitors with a glimpse of how it once looked.

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.
