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.

  • Since the Dejima museum has added a lot of stuff in 2016 I personally think the Dejima is a better place to visit for people who don't speak Japanese and want to learn about the history of Nagasaki and Japanese foreign relations. The permanent exhibition in the Nagasaki Museum of History and Culture is however well worth the visit if you have some additional time. They do a great job telling the story of the history of Nagasaki and Japan's relationship with the outside world. There is however hardly any written English explanations. The free audio tour is quite good but did not cover the entire exhibition. We also visited the temporary Studio Ghibli exhibition. Sadly there was no English audio or text anywhere in the exhibition. Since this was quite an expensive exhibition and since we asked for the audio tour, it would have been nice if they could have told us this.
  • Does have English audio guide, but it could improve on it. Great museum with a clear narative describing the history of Nagasaki.
  • Small but interesting exhibits of the city such as trade and life in ancient times. Excellent gift store. One section on second floor has a historic recrestion (?) Of an old Japanese house.
  • No, more atomic bombs please. Is devastating to see the pain inflicted in others.
  • A good museum that concentrates in local history. English exhibition text is limited. English audio guide is also available but is also limited in content.
