・26 Martyrs of Japan (Nishizaka Park):
This is a hill with a relief depicting the 26 Martyrs of Japan. The site is an official pilgrimage site designed by the Vatican, and pilgrims from all over the world come here to experience the deep history of Christianity and Nagasaki.
During the period of national isolation, Dejima was Japan's only trading port open to the West for about 200 years. Today, 16 buildings are reconstructed to recreate the streetscape of that time. Enjoy a stroll around Dejima while visiting the buildings recommended by your guide.
・Nagasaki Shinchi Chinatown:
One of the three major Chinatowns in Japan. Reclaimed land that was once used to build warehouses for Chinese ships. You can try Nagasaki's typical local gourmet lunches in Chinatown, such as Chanpon Noodle and Sara Udon.
・Dutch Slope: A slope in the area of the former foreign settlement in Higashiyama. When Japan finished the national isolation, gentiles from various countries came to Japan and built Western-style houses to live in this area. Let's take a stroll along the slope as a former gentile "Dutchman".
The oldest surviving church in Japan was built for international residents. The church is also registered as a national treasure.
This is a relocated and restored Western-style building from the Meiji era, which has been designated as a National Important Cultural Property.
After strolling around the park with its beautiful Western-style buildings, take a break and enjoy the view from the hill.
・Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum:
It was opened in 1996 as one of the commemorative projects for the 50th anniversary of the atomic bombing of Nagasaki City, in order to disseminate the reality of the atomic bombing and the wishes of the citizens of Nagasaki for peace. Here you can learn about the threat of nuclear weapons, the thread of war, and the preciousness of peace.
This is a park with a small hill on the north side where the atomic bombs fell. The park was built with a pledge to prevent the tragic war and a wish for world peace. Let's take a walk around the large park and think about war and peace once again.
This red-brick church was built by the believers of Urakami, who were exempted from the ban of Christian oppression. The building was completely destroyed in the atomic bombing, but it has been restored to its original state. Let's touch on the connection between the two deep histories of Christian oppression and the tragedy of the atomic bombing.
This alley was developed from a black market after WWⅡ and is one of Nagasaki's most famous drinking streets with many stores lining the narrow alley. In the evening, the street is lit up with signs everywhere, creating an atmospheric view. Find your favorite store and toast to the end of the tour!
