Nagasaki

Nagasaki prefecture is perhaps the most internationally famous prefecture of Kyushu, due to the fate it met during the Second World War, being the second and last place in the history of man to have a nuclear bomb dropped on it, after Hiroshima. Like Hiroshima, Nagasaki has played a significant role in the effort to try to abolish nuclear weapons, and is a symbol of the importance of world peace. Visit the peace park and memorial museum to learn about the atrocities of war and why it is important to keep peace, but also enjoy other tourist spots such as Gunkanjima, which is a war-ship shaped deserted island which was once a prosperous industrial spot. Also enjoy local fresh fish cuisine and the beautiful nature and panoramic night views from Mt. Inasa in the middle Nagasaki city. Nagasaki is also interesting for its premodern history: its Dejima island used to be the only Japanese port that was open to European traders throughout the Edo period and served as important center of exchange for both goods and ideas.
