Nagasaki tradition
"Nagasaki Kunchi"

Throughout the age of the National Isolation, Nagasaki thrived as the only open port in Japan, and its legacy is still strongly visible across the town as exotic designs from Europe, China, and other corners of the world. Nagasaki is also a prefecture with 971 islands, which is the biggest in Japan. Gunkanjima, a UNESCO world heritage site also known as the Battleship Island, is part of Nagasaki. We hope you enjoy the abundant history and culture of Nagasaki as you visit various tourist spots and try local delicacies.

Nagasaki is also the birthplace of Nagasaki Castella, Japan’s traditional sweet with the history of over 400 years.
