The Hotel Nagasaki ,Nagasaki,Japan

Sightseeing

With the arrival of Portuguese ships in Nagasaki harbor in 1571, Nagasaki's trade, industry, culture and economy flourished, and Nagasaki became a city of culture brimming with international flavor unprecedented in its time. Within Japan it is well-known as a prominent tourist city. A peculiar feature of Nagasaki is its location, and with 70% of the urban area being situated on sloping hills, it is commonly known as "The City of Hills".
On the 9th August, 1945, an atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki, following the bombing of Hiroshima City three days earlier. The city was destroyed and casualties numbered 150,000. The reconstruction of the city was carried out and the city subsequently became a messenger of peace, with the city and its inhabitants calling for permanent peace worldwide.
At present Nagasaki is riding the current of change as the country moves away from the excessive focus on Tokyo in many aspects of life, and with the free exchange of people, goods, and information, Nagasaki has positioned itself as a new base for exchange, and points to a renewed way of urban living.

the 'Bridge of Spectacles'

Megane Bashi

In 1634 the first Tang-dynasty-style stone bridge was built in Japan in Nagasaki. This double-arch bridge became the model for the bridge located at the Imperial residence in Tokyo. The bridge was washed away by a flood in 1982, and was subsequently restored to its original form. A series of other stone bridges starting with the Meganebashi are a popular sight on the Nakashima River.
