Shaped like an amphitheater, with crooked streets and tiered houses clinging to the hillsides, Nagasaki is one of Japans most charming cities. Nagasaki natural beauty includes tempting hot spring resorts and the astounding presence of active volcanoes.

Between 1639 and 1859, when Japan closed its doors to the world, the Tokugawa Shogunate (military government) kept Nagasaki open to limited foreign trade, making it the center for Western technology and science. Nagasaki became a major trading port when Japan fully reopened to the West in the 1850s.

At first glance, the city appears to be very modern, having been rebuilt since 1945. However, your half-day exploration of the city will reveal a number of areas where old buildings, secluded gardens and temples remain.

You will begin your tour with a visit to the somber Nagasaki Peace Park, commemorating the citys destruction by the plutonium bomb dropped on August 9, 1945. Although Fat Man, the name given to the second bomb dropped on Japan, missed its target by over a mile and a half, it leveled nearly half the city. The parks main attraction is its collection of statues and sculptures donated by countries and groups all over the world. This includes the massive Peace Memorial Statue depicting a man with his right arm pointing to the sky to indicate the continued threat of nuclear destruction. Visit the Atomic Bomb Museum, with over 900 artifacts indicative of the citys devastation, as well as displays on modern nuclear technology and concerns.

At the conclusion of your tour you will return to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 2.5 hours of walking with a limited number of steps to negotiate. Those guests with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their personal level of ability and stamina. Casual clothing and comfortable, flat walking shoes are recommended. This tour includes sensitive material including graphic pictures and displays on the atrocities of war. We suggest passengers obtain local currency for shopping.
