Shinchi Chinatown, Nagasaki
Categories: Neighborhoods, Historic Sites, Tourist Spots
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.

面積はそれほど広くない肉まんや角煮マンを食べながらウォーキングできます。ランチ、ディナーの時間帯は人気の店はかなり混みます。1、2時間は待つ覚悟で行かれたほうがいいです。中国雑貨、御菓子のほかカステラ、鼈甲などの郷土のお土産品も多少売っています。Area is very meat and horns sauce while eating a man can walk. Popular stores quite crowded during lunch and dinner hours. You'd better go in prepared to wait one or two hours. Some local sponge cake, tortoiseshell souvenir sells Chinese goods, confectionery, as well.show original
If you're in Nagasaki, go check it out. It's especially neat during the lantern festival. The paths can get a bit congested so I'd recommend against strollers.
横浜の中華街と比べるとコンパクトな中華街、日本人より外国人旅行者が多い。 お店が閉まる時間が早いので不便。Compared with the Chinatown in Yokohama Chinatown compact, Japanese more than foreigners. Time close shop early, so inconvenient.show original
