SpotShinchi Chinatown

Shinchi Chinatown, one of three major Chinatown areas in Japan (along with those in Yokohama and Kobe), is well worth a visit especially at the time of the Lantern Festival in which the Chinese Lunar New Year is celebrated. During the period of national isolation, trade with China became a major source of income and scores of Chinese moved to Nagasaki.
