12.Travel information

About Nagasaki


Nagasaki Prefecture is located in the southwest of Japan. Embraced by mountains on one side, and bordered by the sea on the other, the prefecture is surrounded on all sides by natural beauty. The prefecture is also full of historical, traditional, and cultural riches. Historically, Nagasaki played an important role in Japan’s international relations. A vast amount of culture and knowledge from Asia and Europe flowed to and from Japan via Nagasaki and contributed greatly to the modernization of Japan.

The Port of Nagasaki gained particular prominence during Japan’s period of national isolation, Sakoku. During this time it was the only place in all of Japan which was open for communication with visitors from Europe and the wider world. Even today, many international cruise ships call at this port every year. This colorful history, in which traditional Japanese culture has coexisted and harmonized with overseas cultures, is evident in the region’s architecture, food, and annual events.

About food


The first Japanese fusion cuisine, a mixture of traditional Japanese, Chinese and Western dishes. This is a traditional, Nagasaki style of cuisine that entails a round table adorned with many dishes, overflowing with food that is shared by all diners. Using a wealth of ingredients from Nagasaki, Shippoku is an opportunity to taste the exquisite flavors of a cuisine that brings together elements of Chinese, Japanese and Western dishes. This style of eating and the recipes themselves developed during the Edo period as a result of the exchange which took place between Nagasaki and other countries. Nowadays Shippoku is usually enjoyed at establishments such as ryotei, traditional Japanese restaurants.



Castella is a sweet, moist sponge cake. Based on a recipe originally introduced by Portuguese missionaries in the mid-16 century, and then developed by the people of Nagasaki, it is now a popular souvenir of Nagasaki.


Champon & Sara Udon

At the mention of Nagasaki, many people immediately think of Champon. This dish is loved not only by tourists, but by the locals as well. The story of the origin of Champon is that, during the Meiji period, a local Chinese restaurant made the dish with the aim of providing students from China with a filling and nutritious meal. "Toaku", an ingredient unique to Nagasaki, is used in the noodles to give them a springy texture. Sara Udon is another famous dish representative of Nagasaki; one can choose either crispy, thin noodles or thick Champon noodles.


How to get to Nagasaki

There are many ways to get to Nagasaki. If you are traveling by air, flying to Fukuoka and Nagasaki are your best options. You can book bus tickets from either one that will take you directly to the city of Nagasaki. Alternatively, you can catch the bullet train all the way from Tokyo to the city of Fukuoka. From here you have two options: catch a bus or ride the “Kamome” limited express to Nagasaki Station. If you are traveling to Nagasaki from Fukuoka, you can either catch a bus or ride the “Kamome” from Hakata or Tenjin stations.
