Dutch Trading Post


Set up in Hirado in 1609 as the base of operations of the Dutch East India Company in Japan.

The building seen today is a warehouse which was originally constructed here in 1639 as part

of the trading post, but torn down just three years later after the Dutch had been relocated to

Dejima Island in the port of Nagasaki.



The warehouse was reconstructed in 2011. It was built as close to the original design as possible

and exhibits the facility’s original Dutch architecture of interlocking stone blocks supported by large,

exposed wooden beams. The structure is capped by a Japanese-style tile roof, just like the original.
