Dejima, Nagasaki
(3.9/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
A history enthusiast should not miss a tour of Dejima, the restored site of what was once a manmade island, and Japan's only window into the outside world during the Edo period. Originally built for Portuguese missionaries, the fan-shaped artificial island quickly became a Dutch trading port and, for centuries, the only place in Japan that had contact with other parts of the world. Although not an island anymore, the site offers you a chance to admire restored historic buildings that the traders used, and even sample the "Western cuisine" of that era. Using our custom trip planner, Nagasaki attractions like Dejima can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • The reconstruction of the old trading post offers a real insight into the life of this enclave. The story is so lebenidig tells and shows.

  • It is now the pie is didn't like history textbook illustration. Was an image that projects into the sea is different it is now. Admission is required to enter the Museum and looks like. Can just watch from the outside atmosphere.

  • Pretty cool. If you're interested in history it's worth a visit. It's almost all reconstruction but it gives a good idea as to what it would have been like. It's not quite finished yet, so there's a little building work still happening. On the other hand, it is very very cheap and extremely unique, so it's worth visiting once.
  • Uninteresting and hot buildings with no place to sit. You might love it if you are a history fan and can read japanese
  • It is a nice historical site for knowing the history of Japan and how Japan related to foreign countries.
  • Very interesting open air museum about the dejima island with reconstructed Dutch houses. Most exhibits have an English description.
  • The entrance fee is worthwhile to pay. You can know more about the rule of Tokugawa from visiting this place.
