Today we are travelling on the Seaside Liner from Nagasaki to Huis Ten Bosch. Took a few photos at Nagasaki Station.
Shianbashi is Nagasaki's nightlife area (and former red light district). At night, it comes alive with little restaurants and snack bars.
Teramachi literally means "Temple town" and it is a street full of ... temples. There's an amazing variety of temples here.
Spectacles Bridge is Japan's first Chinese-style stone bridge and one of Japan's Top 3 most well known bridges.
Dejima was used to quarantine foreign traders (Portuguese, then Dutch) during the Edo period of the Tokugawa Shogunate.
We also explored various places around the Nagasaki historic quarter including Oura Machi and Minami Yamate-Machi.
The strangely named "Dutch Slope" is a sloping road leading up to a hill where there are historical Western style houses.
Glover Garden is situated on the southern slope of the Minamiyamate hillside and offers a superb and extensive view of Nagasaki Harbour.
We also visited the Nagasaki Peace Museum, which was similar to the one in Hiroshima but on a smaller scale.
The Atomic Bomb Hypocentre has concentric circles marked around it like a bullseye target, next to the nearby remains of the Urakami church.
Nagasaki Peace Park is built on a low hill to the north of the hypocentre of the atomic bomb blast, and features the Peace Sculpture.
We walked through the Nagasaki Seaside Park. This offers views of Dejima Harbour and incoming boats, plus open space.
Today is a rainy day, which is perfect for travelling from Osaka to Nagasaki. We arrived at 3pm and checked in to the Richmond Hotel.
