Dejima was the only place where direct trade with Holland was conducted for about 200 years during the period of isolation.


The artificial island constructed in the mid-17th century is now part of the city area, connected by landfill. The streets have been restored to the original layout, allowing visitors to experience the atmosphere of by-gone days. The restoration of six buildings is scheduled to be completed by the autumn of 2016, and the restoration of Dejima Omotemon Bridge, which used to exist to connect the island and the mainland, will be completed in 2017, making this unique area more fun and attractive!
