Discover Nagasaki, a vibrant port city on the island of Kyushu. Learn more about its tragic past tied to the atomic bombing in early August of 1945.

Visit the nearby Kofukuji Temple, founded in the first half of the 17th century by a Chinese monk. Kofukuji is one of the most important Chinese Buddhist temples in the country. No visit to Nagasaki is complete without honoring the victims of the atomic bombing and appreciation of world peace in the Nagasaki Peace Park, where numerous commemorative memorials are located. End your Nagasaki shore trip excursion by checking out the scenic views of this port city from Mt. Inasayama.
