From 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM
A beautiful and bustling city, Nagasaki's streets have been touched by foreign culture for generations. This is the port by which the Portuguese and Dutch brought Japan into contact with Western culture in the 1500s, and over the years, international influence has continued to transform Nagasaki into the hub of cosmopolitan activity it is today. Explore the Dutch Slope, where you'll find Dutch residences from the 1800s and Japan's first Protestant Church, Higashi Yamate. Cruise to Nagasaki to see the oldest bridge in Japan, Megane-bashi – or 'Spectacles Bridge', so called for its arched appearance. Then, visit Nagasaki Peace Park, with its 18-metre-wide fountain built to memorialise the events that took place here when the atomic bomb struck in 1945.

Steeped in historical beauty, Kitakyushu is an age-old gateway to the rest of Japan's Kyushu island.

Get familiar with the island's cultural depth at Kokura Castle — see the classic Edo Period architecture with its sweeping white eaves, and stroll through the cherry blossoms that dot the castle grounds.

If you're going to the wisteria gardens, it's best to go with a tour and book in advance to avoid disappointment.
