Nagasaki Travel guide
Nagasaki : Michelin's recommendations
In the 16C Nagasaki was a busy port where goods from Europe and China arrived, centre of evangelisation then persecution of the Christians… then came the death blow on 9 August 1945. The Urakami quarter still bears the physical scars of the atomic bomb. Climbing Mt Inasa (Inasayama) does not necessarily help gain distance from history, but from the summit (333m) you can take in a superb view of this city that is enjoying renewed dynamism. It is also pleasant to stroll about Chinatown and Glover Garden, which hovers between East and West.
