GANBAKUN

Nagasaki Prefecture

As Japan's early gateway to international trade with the West, the diverse melding of Dutch, Chinese, and Korean influences helped form what is now a uniquely Nagasaki culture. Nagasaki's location on the northwestern tip of Kyushu also offers plenty of island getaway opportunities like Tsushima, the flora and fauna-blessed prime destination for eco-tourists. 

While here, pay respects to the victims of the nuclear tragedy at the Nagasaki Peace Park, as well as sample the staple noodle dishes, Champon and Goto Udon.
