Dejima Wharf

Built in the Nagasaki Port Bay Area, this two-story commercial facility on the waterside houses observation decks and many restaurants. Here visitors can enjoy great views of Mt. Inasa, the lights of Seaside Park, as well as boats coming and going in the port.

Ohatobashi Bridge

Ohatobashi Bridge is located at the mouth of the Nakashima River which flows through the centre of the city. The bridge consists of wooden bars and rails, contrasting with its stoned pavement and supports. Enjoy the illuminated white bridge at night in combination with the numerous surrounding lights, including those of the Dejima Wharf and the Nagasaki Port.

Dejima Bridge

Dejima Bridge is the oldest existing iron bridge in Japan. When the original wood and iron bridge was removed following its deterioration, the Shin-Kawaguchi Bridge, originally constructed at the mouth of the Nakashima River in 1890, was relocated to this site and renamed the Dejima Bridge in 1910. In the evening, the pin-jointed iron Pratt truss bridge is illuminated beautifully to make good use of its triangular truss structure.

Megane-bashi Bridge (Spectacles Bridge)

Built in 1634 by the Chinese Monk Mozi of Kofukuji Temple, this 2m long, 3.65m wide, and 5.46m high bridge is famous as Japan's first arched stone bridge. The reflection of the bridge in the water's surface creates two concentric circles in the shape of "spectacles," giving the bridge its name. When the bridge is illuminated at night, the light reflects these spectacles even more clearly on the water's surface.

Sanmon Gate, Kofuku-ji Temple

Sanmon Gate is the magnificent main gate of the Kofuku-ji Temple. In addition to the Sanmon Gate, the Kofuku-ji Temple is home to several cultural properties including Tojin-yashiki-mon Gate (a gate of the former merchant’s house in the Chinese quarter) designated nationally as an Important Cultural Property, Sanko-kaisho-mon Gate (Sanko: Jiangnan, Zhejiang and Jiangxi) designated as a Prefectural Tangible Cultural Property and Taiseiden and Kyodanmon Gate, the remains of one of Japan’s three major schools of Confucianism. The vermillion-lacquered Sanmon Gate is majestically illuminated in the evening.
