Having read accounts of Dejima by Dutch and Portuguese scientists, traders, and visitors , I found it very interesting to visit the very place. Restoration continues to make a national park accessible to Japanese and foreign visitors, offering architectural and museum displays that are quite interesting. Visitors can also rent period costumes for photographs. Some presentations are intended for children... More

We really enjoyed the visit of Dejima to understand the history of Nagasaki and the relationships between Europe and Japan. Most of the explanations are translated into English (and Dutch!). The explanations and the leaflet are very interesting, the map very clear. Some houses are still being renovated. It could be a bit more interactive. We arrived 1hr prior to... More

Dejima was once the only window for the Tokugawa Japan to the Western world from the mid 17th century till mid 19th century. The Dutch merchants annually visited this man-made island (now no longer an island) and traded with the Japanese under the full control of the Tokugawa government in Edo (today’s Tokyo). Ever since 1951, the city of Nagasaki... More

Located in center of Nagasaki. They are in the process of restoring and adding more buildings. They have recreated living quarters, walls, gates and warehouses.
