City of Peace
The hilly port city of Nagasaki has become known internationally as one of the two Japanese cities to be destroyed by an atomic bomb towards the close of World War II. This history, of course, remains important to the city, its inhabitants, and to the wider world, and should not be forgotten. Nor is it, with a number of moving memorials, touching tributes, and preserved areas of destruction, now standing as symbols of peace and warnings against war. These sites should not be missed during any trip to Nagasaki. But the city--historically one of the country's most outward-looking and international--has rebuilt itself into a place of exciting nightlife featuirng a bright and modern waterfront, pristine gardens, modern architecture, and diverse cuisine. Our Japan trip itinerary builder allows you to plan your trip to Nagasaki and a wealth of other destinations big and small.

Where to stay in Nagasaki

Across the hills of Nagasaki you'll find a welcome number of places to stay, and a welcome degree of variation between them. Look around the main train station for the greatest number of options, with high-rise blocks containing hotels both basic and luxury. Following the train line both north and south of this central area, guesthouses and hostels crowd around the stations, and clusters of modern hotels mark out popular commercial districts. Rental apartments throughout the city provide a good budget-friendly option for those planning on staying for a little while.
