Beautiful setting, December 7, 2010
Reviewer: Erwin1lucy

Pros: Good public transport beautiful scenery

Cons: The peace museum did not mention Pearl Harbor

Very beautiful city. Glover gardens is gorgeous and what a gorgeous tea ceremony. The peace museum is quite sad but must-see. Great tram system. Very clean city, friendly helpful people

The classic Japanese cruise port, August 26, 2010
Reviewer: Todd Todd

Pros: Absolutely beautiful

Cons: If there are two ships in town it feels overrun

Be sure to be on deck for the arrival into Nagasaki. The huge shipyards are your signal to get the camera ready as you sail into one of the most beautiful ports in the world. Nagasaki is set around an amazing harbor...a perfect refuge from the typhoons that come out of the China Sea. You'll pass under a suspension bridge and through the narrow channel to dock right smack dab in the center of town. The dock is right on the front street and the famous Glover Mansion (think Madam Butterfly) is right above you. The town is thrilled to have you visit and usually rolls out the red carpet for visitors. The hillside park with the Glover Mansion, museums and gardens is easily accessed with escalators and elevators. Be sure to start at the top and work your way down. This is a great place to take a shot of your ship if you haven't done so. The town is famous for a rich pound cake that the Portugese brought to Japan. You can buy slices all over town. The streets leading up to the gardens are lined with shops. Nagasaki is also famous for Chinese food and there's a famous restaurant with a pagoda roof right at the bottom of the slope. The most famous dish is Nagasaki-style mixed noodles. You can also visit the Nagasaki atomic bomb memorial. This is an extremely moving memorial, partially underground. Right in the center of town, a short taxi or bus ride away, is a reproduction of the old Dutch quarter. More interesting historically and intellectually than visually. If you're going shopping for Japanese porcelain there are shops with plenty to choose from since some of the most famous kilns are near by.
