Visit Gunkanjima Island (Battleship Island) in Nagasaki

9 reviews
Japan’s fascinating Gunkanjima (Battleship) Island went from being one of its most densely populated areas to an abandoned island. Enjoy a day trip to this island, with a free boat journey and admission fees included. This island can only be reached by boat, so you’ll save time planning your trip by having the transfer organized for you. You’ll have time to explore the island (recognized as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site) before heading back to Nagasaki.

Even if you don't pay the entrance fee to enter one of the houses, you can walk in this area for free. The actual slope is kind of steep and paved with stone. The homes themselves are not too interesting but this area is a historical part of Nagasaki's history.

A short walk will take you around a number of old homes that go back to the period of European contact.

This stone paved street was pleasant area of Nagasaki where Westerners, predominately Dutch Merchants lived in the second half of the 19th century. Worth a stroll through a street of Western houses and not like Japan at all.

The Dutch Slope is a stone-paved street leading up a hillside in Nagasaki where many foreign traders resided after the opening of the city's port to foreign trade in 1859. Because the Dutch were the only Westerners allowed in the country for the preceding two centuries, "Dutch" referred to everything Western for a while.
