SpotNagasaki Saruku Haku

"Nagasaki Saruku Haku (the formal name being: ""The Saruku Urban Walking Tour Expo 2006"") is scheduled to be held in Nagasaki from April 1st to October 29th. The word ""Saruku"" is a local Nagasaki word for strolling leisurely around town. ""Saruku Haku"" is the first such festival in Japan and provides visitors with the opportunity to wander around the town enjoying the town's unique atmosphere and learning about its fascinating history while sampling the culinary delights on offer.

Must see sightseeing spots in the city include Glover Garden, Peace Park, the night view from Mount Inasa (the so called $10 million night view), Dejima (an historical place recently reconstructed) and the Nakashima River and Spectacles Bridge (Megane Bashi) where famous warriors strolled at the end of the Edo period (1603-1867), and as many as 42 courses have been prepared for the Expo to take in these sites. Some courses remind us of early trade with Western nations and Japan's neighbor, China. Other tour sites relate to the opening of Japan to the world in the late 19th century and others still visit the site of the atomic bomb catastrophe in the summer of 1945. With maps produced by those who know the area better than anyone, the local residents, it is fun to tour with one of the more than 400 guides prepared to help out tourists for the period of the Expo. The guides themselves, being locals, do talk in Japanese but some tours will be conducted in English, Chinese and Korean. Learn about the traditions and performing arts from literal experts on some of the tours."
