Shinchi Chinatown, Nagasaki
(1.8/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
Explore one of Japan's largest Chinese quarters at Shinchi Chinatown, teeming with restaurants, confectioneries, and shops selling traditionally made souvenirs. During the Edo Period (1603-1867), when the entire nation was isolated from the rest of the world, Nagasaki was the only city allowed to openly trade with China. Through the ages, the neighborhood has developed into a sightseeing hub, marked off by traditional red-colored gates on all four sides. Depending on the side of your approach, you will be welcomed by one of four deity sculptures guarding the entry: Azure Dragon at the east, White Tiger at the west, Black Tortoise at the north, and Vermilion Bird at the south. The area hosts many festivities, most notably Chinese New Year, when colorful lanterns decorate the streets and fireworks light the sky. See Shinchi Chinatown and all Nagasaki has to offer by arranging your trip with our Nagasaki trip itinerary maker.

  • This is a great fun place to go with lots of little shops and good photo .it can be very busy there are plenty of places to eat and drink .when we were there it was raining but we enjoyed it 
  • It is, I visited other Yokohama, Kobe, Japan three major Chinese city that were looking forward to, but considerably smaller. It is also good. Across the river and big shops do it and had 2 stores. Probably the main 2 store? I felt compared the somewhat Dim and Yokohama with a small wonder. It may be nice meeting and try to eat could not this time entering the store, especially when it comes.
