Kyushu Travel Guide

Dejima

 

Only the trading port in Japan during Natinal isolation              

 

The fan-shaped artificial island in the bay of Nagasaki that was a Dutch trading port

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.
