Nagasaki Prefecture

Nagasaki Prefecture

An important international trading port with a mix of different cultures located at the northwestern tip of Kyushu Island.

Nagasaki is bordered by Saga Prefecture to the east and surround by water, in addition with hundreds of smaller islands located at the northwestern tip of Kyushu Island to form Nagasaki. Nagasaki has played an important role in foreign trade relations for centuries due to its location and being one of a few ports open for trade during a time of complete isolation in Japan. Acting as an active military naval base for the Imperial Japanese Navy and the center of shipbuilding for the Mitsubishi Heavy Industries during the Meiji Restoration, caused Nagasaki prefecture to suffer major consequences towards the end of World War 2. On August 9, 1945, Japan was the first country in the world to receive the second highest technological advancement weaponry in military history. The atomic bomb destroyed more than 80% of the industrial production, along with tens of thousands killed by the impact alone.

Some of the most popular tourist locations at Nagasaki Prefecture are Nagasaki Peace Park, Glover Garden, Dejima and China Town. The Nagasaki Peace Park was built to commemorate the atomic bombing, which consists of a museum and the original explosion site. While at Glover Garden, visitors can explore this open air museum, which consists of western structures, ponds and garden regarded as the oldest surviving western style houses in Japan. Dejima is a manmade island for foreign traders to reside near during the Edo Period, a time when interactions with foreign countries were forbidden. Lastly, visitors can stroll along one of the largest China Towns in Japan, which was established in the 17th century by local Chinese residents living at Nagasaki.
