Enjoyable activities to enhance your Nagasaki experience
Nagasaki has many attractions where you can feel the history and romance of old and new and offers visitors a range of enjoyable activities. How about, for example, doing some Japanese calligraphy and painting in a Japanese-style room? You can write your favorite words or pictures with a brush, ink and paper while drinking Japanese tea. Or perhaps you prefer trying your hand at yuzen dyeing (a Japanese dyeing technique for fabrics) with an experienced and professional local teacher? There is a class where you can learn how to make an original eco bag with special paper and unique paint. If strolling around is your thing, go for a walk to discover the highlights of the city, better if guided by a friendly local. Suwa Shrine is one of the most prominent shrines in Nagasaki and is the origin site of the famous Nagasaki Kunchi Festival held every October. Destroyed by Jesuits, it was revived in 1625 and makes a great place to learn about the Shinto religion. Whatever your interests, Nagasaki has everything to make your trip a memorable one.
