Opened by the Portuguese in 1571, Nagasaki flourished as a busy trading port and center for Christian missionary activities. In 1641, after the adoption of a national ban on Christianity and the expulsion of the Portuguese, the Dutch trading post and Chinese settlement in Nagasaki became Japan's only points of contact with the outside world for more than 200 years. This created Nagasaki into a unique blend of cultures and a liberal atmosphere unheard of in other parts of Japan.

The atomic bomb catastrophe turned a dark page in Nagasaki's turbulent history, but the city is now a center of peace blessed with the beauty of nature and numerous places of historical and cultural interest which still exude the rich flavour of old Nagasaki.
