Dejima

 

Dejima is the fan-shaped artificial island in the bay of 
Nagasaki that was a Dutch trading post as Japan’s only 
open gateway to Europe during Japan’s self-imposed 
isolation of Edo period from 1641 until 1853.

The Dutch East India Company’s trading post at Dejima 
was closed in 1857. Since then, the island has been 
surrounded by reclaimed land and merged into Nagasaki: 
its original location is marked by rivets.

 

A project to restore Dejima is underway.
In 2000, five buildings including the Deputy Factor’s 
Quarters were completed and opened to the public. 

In the spring of 2006, the finishing touches were put 
on the Chief Factor’s Residence, the Japanese 
Officials’ Office, the Head Clerk’s Quarters, the No. 3 
Warehouse and the Sea Gate.
