This year I visited the city Nagasaki on Kyushu for the 2nd time. The previous time I visited was back in 2009. As I really liked this city it was worth coming back. It's international history plays a very big part in the history of Japan and it's international relations.

Nagasaki is on my list. I like the interesting seaside situation there, nice bay, nice mountains all around, in the neighbourhood the scary Unzen and the interesting Omura Bay. The historical stories this city has to tell are also very interesting and the pretty unique tram gives the city some extra touch. For that I like Nagasaki way more than Fukuoka everybody praises high.

I see that Nagasaki has some really nice alleys! But the modern taller houses are really ugly. They should replace them with better ones. Maybe Nagasaki can create some nice skyscraper ocean styles, something fishy, seaweedy or octopussy style. =D Nagasaki needs a nice signature highrise.

There's just 1 tower now, 95m tall, clearly visible in my opening post picture. But there are 4 towers in 3 projects that will go U/C the coming years. They will start to give the city a proper skyline, but you can't really say that any of the 4 towers will become a signature highrise.

This one was announced just after I left Nagasaki, the tallest of the 2 will be a 150m tall hotel tower. It will also include a new stadium for the V-Varen Nagasaki Football Club.

The trams form the public transport network in the city, this is at Shokakuji-shita stop, the final stop of the lines 1 & 5. The small trams run in a very high frequency, if the tram is full you just wait for the next one.

Nakanochaya, a tea house / museum / Japanese garden, a small attraction that won't see to much visitors. I still don't exactly know where this museum was dedicated to, probably some illustrator, but not someone really historical. The small garden and the tea was nice.
