Dejima has so much history and is a truly unique attraction, the buildings have been restored wonderfully and they are set out and furnished in a way to make you think and understand their usage. Really enjoyed my time here.

Although it only gives you a glimpse of the life on Dejima in the later years, you can really experience a time-travel sensation. I hope the site will be enlarged and improved one day providing more historical context, but this place is a must, especially...More
