  • 36 Comments

Located on the southwest coast of Kyushu island, Nagasaki is often associated with the atomic bombing in World War II. One of few Japanese cities to trade with the outside world, Nagasaki flourished as an important trading port with Portuguese in 1543. Foreign influences are still evident in prominent architectural structures, from Christian churches and European houses to Chinese-styled Kofukuji temple.

The best time to visit Nagasaki is winter which runs from November to March. Although Nagasaki receives a bit of rainfall during these times, the pleasantly cooling weather more than makes up for it. January and February are the coldest months of the year with heavy snowfall. The average temperature may drop to below 5°C.

Asia Shore Excursions offers the best Nagasaki shore excursions for cruise passengers who stop at Nagasaki port, Japan. Please contact us to get the best shore excursions in Nagasaki or enjoy the flexibility to customize the itinerary to fit your needs.

As one of the most important and also closest port cities in Japan, Nagasaki plays an essential role in trading and traveling field that attracts a large number of visitors, especially passengers in Japan Shore Excursions. With a hope of bringing the best experiences to you, Asia Shore Excursions would like to recommend some popular attractions below

Peace Memorial Park

It is said that no shore trip to Nagasaki can miss a visit to the Peace Memorial Park. The park was built to commemorate over 10.000 victims caused by the bloody atomic bombing of Nagasaki in 1945. The bombing not only blown away a large part of the city but also left the extremely heavy consequences for many later generations. At the north, the Peace Statue with the height of 10 meters is considered as the highlight of the park. In the center called Hypocenter Park, standing a simple black monolith marking the point where the bomb exploded. Moreover, visitors can get a glimpse of the destructive power caused by the bombing by a look at the layer of soil under the surface where broken roof tiles, bricks and millions of pieces of glass still are remained.

Atomic Bomb Museum

Japan had to suffer the heavy consequences caused by the bombing. Hopping on Japan Shore Trips, a visit to places where you can get a deep look at that event is always recommended. The Atomic Bomb Museum is a memorial to the atomic bombing of Nagasaki in 1945. The Museum skillfully tells the event as a story that is easy for visitors can imagine the real history. The story begins with the heinous scene revealing the attack that includes the events causing to the atomic bombing. Then it leads to the images about the reconstruction of Nagasaki till now. Moreover, the history of nuclear weapons development and the hope for a peaceful world without nuclear weapons are also displayed. The museum is divided into four main sections. Besides, the lecture hall is the place where survivors share their experiences through the bombing. Photographs, documents, and original objects are displayed to show the heavy destruction. Please notice that the image will bring the upset and haunting feeling which is not suitable for emotional people.

Martyrdom of the 26 Saints

There is an interesting attraction that not everybody knows when taking the shore trips to Nagasaki - Monument for the Martyrdom of the 26 Saints of Japan - the place where 26 Catholics were executed here by the order of a national leader. The monument lands on a hill that offers a spectacular view over the city of Nagasaki. The Memorial Hall stands peacefully behind the real-sized bronze statues of 26 saints. It presents the history of Christianity and exhibitions such as a letter written by the priest Nakaura Julien which addressed to Portugal’s King John III, the private record of the battle of Shimabara, the Maria Kannon sculpture, a bronze Pieta from the 16th century, and many frescoes and Japanese paintings.

Shimabara Castle

It is said that no Japan shore excursion can miss a visit to lines of castles along the country. On Nagasaki, the Shimabara Castle is the most attractive one which is built from Edo Period serving as the shelter for the feudal lord. Because of being heavily damaged in Meiji Period, this white-walled castle is reconstructed from 1964. Learn more about the history of 17th-century castle with as you wander around its walls, moat and spectacular terrace gardens. The castle has five stories home to the Castle Tower Museum where displays various Christian artifacts such as the castle ruins, armor, and weapons. The observation deck on the highest floor provides a wonderful view sweeping vista to Mount Unzen and across the water to Kumamoto.

Glover Garden

Located on a beautiful hill, the Glover Garden was created to preserve the residences decreased by the passage of time. The garden is an open-air museum that exhibits mansions of many former foreign houses and also related buildings. The Nagasaki shore trips including a visit to Glover Garden will lure you away with stunning scenery and serene atmosphere. Standing in the Glover Garden, you can catch the panoramic view of Nagasaki Bay and the whole city. The houses are considered as being the set-up and inspiration for the Opera Madame Butterfly of Puccini. Glover Garden is covered with beautiful traditional houses built for British businessman including the oldest wooden house which is built with Western style in Japan.

Dejima Museum

Asia Shore Excursions provides some shore excursions to Dejima Museum that you can get a glimpse of the Western-old-fashion right in the heart of a city in Japan. Built-in 1636 close, Dejima was formerly an artificial island. Although it is not an island anymore, many historical relics have been restored. Dejima Museum is a complex created by many small buildings including several exhibitions of the Dutch and other foreign countries. Inside the ground of museum, some tidy streets lined up beside the large buildings which are designed following traditional Japanese style dated back to the 17th century with pure white walls, dark wooden beams, and slanting tiled roofs. Vending machines scattered on tatami mats and air-conditioners are always in good condition. If you visit the Dejima Museum with your kids, they will probably be excited with the cotton candy machine.
