Like other reviewers I knew nothing about this place. The former island home of the Dutch traders is now part of the mainland and some buildings are still being restored, but overall it is a most interesting place with many different types of buildings including the Club and a protestant school.

Interesting look around this restored island that I knew nothing about at all. Charts the historical life and times of people on this island that was cut off for so long from the outside world. The newer parts are very well done with some guides willing to share their knowledge of the island and how it worked. Worth a spending... More

This is a reconstruction of the island they made foreign traders live on when Japan was closed to the rest of the world. There is a lot of history and reading. You can spend two hours here easily. It costs 500 yen to get in. I'm very interested in this history so I enjoyed it. They re-created some rooms how... More

Now this rebuilt village/port is something else. it takes you back in time to the time when Japan was a closed country in the early 17th century. I am so pleased that I came here for a few hours.

Although you won't see any of the original buildings, the restoration is quite good and the exhibits have informative signs. Worth a look.

Walk all the way to the end and view the garden. When we were there, there were not only cherry blossoms, but tulips - what a picture. The display of Dutch settlers was well done and informative. I loved it.

This mock up of the original Dutch living quarters is well worth a visit. It essentially used to be a very small island that non-Japanese (mainly Dutch) were confined to during the 17th to 19th centuries. It's not very well advertised and I happen to come across it when making my way to a hotel. It has extensive, and comprehensive,... More
