Kyushu Trip: Nagasaki

After our Hakata ramen we headed for Nagasaki. Our first stop the next day was Tera-machi (temple street). Nagasaki was a major international port and so the city is left with many foreign influences, especially Chinese and European.

The next few are from Sofukuji temple.

Another couple of temple gates along Tera-machi.

The next few shots are from Kofukuji.

This is megane bashi (spectacles bridge)


Along the waterfront.

This is shot from Dejima. They built an island in the bay for the Dutch traders since they were not allowed to enter Japan. Now it’s a museum and the “island” is now in town since they’ve expanded into the bay.
