Nagasaki became a center of Dutch, Portuguese and other European influences in the 16th century and flourished as a trading port & center of Christian missionary activities.
The detonation for an atomic bomb over Nagasaki during the Second World War is a dark
page in the cities turbulent history.
Now, however the city has become a center of peace, blessed with beautiful natural scenery
and eclectic mix of historical sites and architecture.
In fact, many churches and Christian sites have been proposed for inclusion on the UNESCO
World Heritage list.
