Dutch Slope is a stone paved street that are lined with several Western style houses. While most buildings are private, a handful have been well preserved and are open to public. Few have been converted to cafes while some still have the same layouts with...More

This hill, which actually has nothing to do with the Dutch, is a very nice hill to walk. At some points quite steep but you will walk on a nice and very walkable pavement. When you follow Dutch Hill all the way, from the beginning...More

The Dutch Slope is considerd a must see. It's a very nice walk day or night to get a feel of the older parts of the city. It's worth wandering around and getting lost.

Neither a gentle climb, nor too severe, but it's worth the effort to go up the slope and see the various historical buildings along the way. Follow it to the end and back down again.

The history behind Dutch Slope (aka, Hollander Slope) is quite interesting. Many of the early Caucasian settlers were Dutch, and then it turns out that the locals would call ANY Caucasian Dutch because of the similar appearance. There are some old western style buildings here,...More

The Dutch slopes (there are a few) really relate to all Western traders pre war. The slopes are flanked by old buildings built by westerners in western styles, lots of wood and verandas.

This is quite an incline leading up to the cathedral and church at the top. It has shops and eateries on both sides but they seem to close around eight as we went up after dinner. The cathedral is lit up after dark and is...More

This is unnecessarily hyped tourist destination when it is just a slope on a hill to return from the Dutch Cathedral and is lined with souvenir shops . It makes a good backdrop for pictures too but that's all about it .

If it wasn't for the title, it's just a steep walk. The name itself is a good reflection of previous generations of Japanese culture, but you don't really get any appreciation for the history when you work here.

For 2 centuries till 19th century, the Netherlands is the only European country that had diplomatic and trade relationship with Japan. The 'Dutch' represented Europe in those days.

Maybe you can take a day and check out Kagoshima and take the trip around Sakurajima if you want to be able to get closer to another active volcano. Hiroshima is also not too far away if you want to say hi to the deer on Miyajima. I love Fukuoka personally and like to just hang out in the city, especially a walk around Odori park.
