Private Walking Street Food Tour Of Nagasaki

You’ll go on a tantalizing tour of central Nagasaki’s Chinese-influenced cuisine. Sample street food in the crisscrossing lanes of Chinatown, like Champon (noodles in a pork broth topped with seafood) or steamed buns filled with tender pork belly. The Maruyama entertainment district is chock-full of famous foodie spots, while the Hamanomachi Arcade has a couple of local haunts of its own. Shop for traditional sweets at the 200-year-old Iwanaga Baijuken sweet shop, and grab a bag of Yori Yori sweets (deep-fried, twisted cookies) for later.<br><br>Within 24 hours after booking you'll receive a short questionnaire about your personality and interests. Based on your responses, you'll be assigned a like-minded host. Your host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary to help you discover what makes the city unique. You will also agree on a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience, you can always change your mind about what you want to do.

長崎の江戸の歴史の象徴の一つと言うべき観光スポットです。とは言え総面積は約1万5千平方メートルと東京ドームの約3分の1にすぎず、展示を吟味せず周回するだけなら1時間とかかりません。施設内は展示がほとんどであり体験コーナーに類するアトラクションが少ないため、小さな子供は退屈してしまうかもしれません。それでも、江戸時代で唯一欧米に対し開かれた場所がここであるため、当時の欧米の文化や日本との関りを知る上で貴重な史料が多く存在することは間違いなく、歴史好きの人は必ず訪れるべきところだと思います。 観光客を呼び込むための無駄にゴテゴテした派手な演出は無く、淡々と往年の様相を今に伝えようとしているため、味気無さは感じるかもしれませんが想像を掻き立てさせられます。海外からの観光客にも知ってもらうための工夫もあり、多言語による展示も充実しています。 It is a tourist spot that should be called one of the symbols of the history of Edo period in Nagasaki. However, The total area of the facility is only about 15,000 square meters, about one-third the size of Tokyo Dome, and it will take you less than an hour just to go around without examining the exhibits. Since the facility is mostly exhibitions and there are few attractions similar to hands-on corners, small children may get bored. Even so, Dejima was the only place in the Edo period that was open to the Europe, so there are undoubtedly many valuable historical documents that can be used to understand the culture of the West at that time and its relationship with Japan, making it a must-visit for history buffs. There is no needlessly flashy staging to attract tourists, but rather a simple attempt to tell the story of the past in the present. There is also an effort to make the museum more accessible to tourists from overseas, and there is a full range of exhibits in various languages.

It's a very fascinating place. Considering that this small island was the only place in Japan that any foreigners could live, they made it work like a country, almost a selfcontained system. Huge recommendation especially for foreigners to see how our ancestors interacted with Japan! It's also a kind of weird and unique mix of Japanese and Western cultures.

A preserved Museum to a strange period in Nagasaki's History. Built c.1636 as a man-made Island to originally segregate the Portuguese from the Japanese and exert control over their Missionary activities, and then, when the Portuguese were thrown-out, the Dutch was sectioned and hemmed in here. Clarity over this was not apparent, so we were left wondering whether this was an example of Religious, Race, Cultural, or Language persecution or what. I guess that is up to the individual's interpretation. A brief wander around, took some pics, stepped inside a couple of the Rooms / Houses & left for the Journey back to Fukuoka.
