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 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.

All the former foreigner houses in this area are barren, some turned into photo galleries of old times. Reminiscent of a similar quarter in Koba which may be a more interesting. If you don't get there, don't feel you've missed anything. No 1. and 2...More

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.
