A fun and short walk gets you from one end to the other. Filled with shops and many restaurants makes for an enjoyable addition to your day

Was there on a friday afternoon, and it is quiet. No many shops are open, and this place is small. I won't recommend it, really.

This is a typical Chinatown, though very small. Many restaurants and some impressive gates. It is situated between the main shopping area of Nagasaki and the cruise terminal.

I did not know there is lantern festival host in Nagasaki till I arrive. Even thought the lantern festival is original from Chinese Culture - doesn't make this event less worth visiting. The street and store looks like the scene from movie "Spirit Away" ....More

Great place to visit during Chinese New Year! Lots going on to entertain. Reasonable walk from the cruise terminal and worth the time. Well signposted and many informative historical information points scattered around. Four small temples that you can walk to. Usual selection of restaurants...More

We just passed this chinatown several times on our way through town. It's tiny but has some restaurants and some stores. Nice to have a quick look but there are definitely more intersting chinatowns.

Ok, it was a Monday evening in early December but this place was dead. Empty restaurants and nothing to excite the senses.

Nagasaki's China town is now quite small compared to those in Yokohama and Kobe, but lacks none of the character. Enter through one of the large traditional gates to find narrow streets with restaurants, gift and other traditional shops. There is aslo acolourful temple, museum...More

It's much smaller and less lively than the Chinatowns in Yokohama and Kobe. I visited after 8pm (in January) and most of the shops have closed.
