Dejima, Nagasaki

(3.9/5 based on 650+ 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.

  • In a very retro atmosphere that lived here in front of the tram, was wonderful. Take off your shoes to get in the building facilities are three master so it was hard on string track. You could sense tableware and condiment bottles imported in recent years periods. Back gate was just a short walk to Chinatown.

  • Early 19th-century period of national seclusion, the only point of contact with the West in Dejima was faithfully restored, shows well at the time. We sat was a 産yu restaurant, café. It was a 510 Yen admission fee.

  • 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.
