NAGASAKI PREFECTURE

Historically a key gateway into Japan for foreign tradespeople and missionaries, Nagasaki Prefecture still displays many traces of its past. The prefectural capital of Nagasaki City has buildings in its southern hills preserved from the early Meiji era, as well as the fascinating, fan-shaped island of Dejima, which for centuries was the only Japanese location that Europeans could trade from. Nature-wise, the prefecture features volcanoes, hot springs and forested islands. Definitely worth visiting are Shimabara - a friendly town with a spectacular castle, pretty streets and local delicacies, and Iki - an island with a fine museum and fascinating marine life.
