Nagasaki, located on the sea, has always been considered a very important commercial city for the Japanese economy. Nagasaki is also remembered for having been destroyed, after Hiroshima, by the atomic bomb during World War II. It is impressive to see how the city has been reconstructed and how it is considered a tourist destination by many Western tourists visiting Japan.

It is very easy to get to Nagasaki either by train (there is a Japan Railway line, which you can use if you are a pass owner) or by bus. Once in the city, there are plenty of local buses and trams to get around or you can simply explore the various areas on foot to take in as much as possible.

Despite being upsetting, visiting the Atomic Bomb Museum is very interesting and teaches a lot about nuclear power. There are other things to do in Nagasaki, like walking trough China Town, going to the Peace Park, getting on top of Mount Inasa) from where you can admire the best and most stunning night view of the city).

Art and architecture lovers should visit the Art Museum, an interesting modern building that hosts permanent and temporary exhibitions and which has a great roof garden with a not-bad view. There are plenty of temples and shrines to be visited too. For families and kids, there also is the Penguin Aquarium, which can be a nice alternative activity for something different.

In a city as big as Nagasaki it is easy to find any kind of accommodation. For travelers on a budget there are few Nagasaki hostels that offer reasonable priced dorms or private rooms; just keep in mind that Japan is a very expensive country, which means that Nagasaki hostels might not have the same range price of other Asian countries like Thailand, for instance. Another not-too-expensive alternative to Nagasaki hostels are guesthouses. There are plenty of hotels, of course, for those who have a bigger budget.
