Chinatown in Nagasaki is called one of the largest three Chinatowns in Japan. However, its size was small. Its area includes a few streets. I took 10 mins from the gate to the exit. There were many Chinese restaurants. I recommend to visit this place...More

Walked through this area of Nagasaki and it's tiny compared to any other I have been to. Having said that it is cute and several Chinese food places, which we didn't try because we weren't hungry. Nice for a stroll through.

It was way smaller than we thought. We wandered around pretty early when things weren't open. So maybe that'salong the reason we didn't enjoy it so much.

it is really like the Chinatowns that seem to exist in every major city around the world. The colour of the surrounds and shops makes an interesting contrast to Japanese streets which are either more austere or high tech glitz. Overall not worth a special...More
