Nagasaki is a city once highly important for international trade. During sakoku (the 1630's-1850's period where Japan closed its borders), it was the one of the only places that allowed foreign trade through the island of Dejima. Sadly, Nagasaki is also known as the second victim of the atomic bomb, and the Peace Park and Atomic Bomb Museum provide a moving insight into the experiences of all those affected. This privately guided tour will show you these essential sights of the city, and much more!
