Nagasaki city is easy walking distance from the port and a one day tram pass costs just 500 Yen. There is plenty to see and do in the city and the sites are easy to reach by tram. The shipyard where the Diamond and Sapphire Princess were built is nearby but not open to visitors. Having visited the Peace Park and Nagasaki museum on a previous trip, we decided to go to Glover Gardens then on to the Inasa Ropeway (cable car). Glover Garden is just 10 minutes walk from the port. It is a pleasant collection of relocated European style homes built for foreign traders and diplomats when Japan was first opened to the world. It is built on the hill side but there are escalators to make it easier to reach. Entry was 610 Yen. The old Catholic Church, constructed in 1864 during the Edo Period, is close to Glover Gardens. The church was designed to appeal to the growing community of foreign merchants and is the only Western building designated as a national treasure. The Inasa Ropeway was a short tram ride away and gave us panoramic views of the island of Kyushu. The return trip costs 1230 Yen and cars runs every 20 minutes. The “Spectacle” bridge is of interest, as is Shinchi China Town, if time permits. On leaving Nagasaki, we passed Hashima, which is also known by its nickname “Gunkanjima” (Battleship Island) due to its unique silhouette. Gunkanjima flourished as a coal mining community from 1890. In 1974 when the coal mine closed, the island became completely deserted. Read Less

Not a bad tour to get an overview of the city and see the Atomic Bomb Museum. The peace park was the best part.

Very interesting tour and was pleased that the guide had pitched the atomic bomb neutrally in that she was not anti-American and did not portray Japan as downtrodden.

Here you have a great team service right at the dock, no need to do excursions, you can do it all yourself

We bought a tram pass and it included a tourist map. We found that the tram drivers were very friendly and very willing to try to help. We went to the Garden, the Shrine, the Spectacle Bridge, and the Peace Park. A very affordable day.

It was a beautiful port with convenient transport options to see sites (Peace Park, Dejima etc). We enjoyed visiting this port very much, there were lots to do and see. Use The StreetCar day pass for 500 Yen.

We have been to Nagasaki previoiusly and spend most of our time at the Atomic Bomb Museum. It was extremely informative, but not something I could forget or required a refresher. We opted to simply walk along the waterfront.

The cruise port is close to the city. There is a tram system, but we just walked and covered quite a lot of ground including the Peace Park, churches, temples, cathedrals, Spectacles Bridge. Had a great day and saw a lot at our own pace.

We walked about Nagasaki on our own. As you disembark head inland and there is a tram line that connects all the major tourist areas. Buy a day ticket from any souvenir stores and hop on and off as often as you like

We bought a day pass on the local tram and used it to go to the Peace Park. Very easy from the ship and cost about £7.50 for the two of us. On the 9th of each month, there is a peace vigil to remember those killed and also to promote the disbandonment of atomic bombs. School children were also there to pay their homage. Found the whole thing very moving even if we did get back to the ship looking like drowned rats. Read Less

We walked around downtown. Everything is pretty close to the port. The Glover House was interesting with the garden and the koi fish swam in a pool. Great views of the harbor and city with very low cost.
