Nagasaki is a pretty city on the island of Kyushu. Well known to many as the second target for the atomic bomb however this is not all that Nagasaki has to offer. The city has a slightly different feel to many other Japanese cities as it has had over two centuries of contact with Chinese, British, Dutch, and Portuguese at a time when the rest of Japan was closed off to the world. You will be able to see the influences of various cultures around Nagasaki such as the European-style houses and Catholic Churches in Glover Gardens (pictured)- the supposed setting for Puccini's Madame Butterfly. For something a bit different, take a day trip from Nagasaki to the resort town of Huis Ten Bosch which is a replica of an old Dutch town.
