Centuries of serving Anything but the Ordinary


Indulge in Nagasaki's unique cuisine and entertainment


Kagetsu is proof that traditional doesn’t necessarily mean boring. Tuck into a cuisine influenced by Nagasaki's rich history of trade with the Chinese, Dutch, and Portuguese as you gaze out over the restaurant's tranquil garden. Order the Shippoku course for a real treat; it might be one of the few times you begin and end a meal with soup!


Go the extra mile and reserve a traditional geisha show to complete the traditional Japanese experience. The performance comes complete with song and dance routines, and they might even pour a drink or two for you.


Experience all of this in a building that has seen little change since it opened in 1642. History is proudly on display, both on the menu, and in the building itself. Tour the small exhibit showcasing artifacts that have been collected over the nearly 400 years of Kagetsu’s history. Don't miss this unique experience.



Kagetsu is located in close walking distance from Nagasaki's Chinatown as well as Dejima, a one-time Dutch trading post—ideal destinations for an after-meal, walk along the river and through history.


Access: From Hakata Station, take the Relay Kamome Line limited express from Hakata Station to Takeo Onsen Station (about one hour), transfer to the Nishi-Kyushu Shinkansen to Nagasaki Station (about 30 minutes), then transfer to tram line 1 for Sofukuji Temple and get off at the Shimbashi stop. Kagetsu is a four-minute walk away.
