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.

  • Now has restored and maintained as a tourist destination. Admission is adults 510 yen per person. Once customs, including factory Director of the Netherlands is reproduced, Dejima was such atmosphere that reveals. Since we now also seems to have been restoration of the future is fun.

  • Went inside and Samurai easily explain facility. It took two hours before outside watching the Dejima model reproduces the rooms or video watching. This is the place was connected to Europe only in Japan. In the Netherlands who had been living in a narrow trade because Dejima is appreciated.

  • I wanted to see something more about the Dutch presence in Nagasaki, but it wasn't shown. But the small harbour is a good place for a happy-hour and still worth the visit.

  • 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.
