Stone-paved path leading to an area of Nagasaki where many foreigners lived from the latter half of the 19th century. All non-Asians were assumed to be Dutch for many years, owing to the long history of trade with the Dutch at Dejima, and so while the area was home to foreigners of many different nationalities, it was called “Dutch Slope” (オランダ坂, oranda-zaka) by the Japanese. Today the most prominent residence is Higashi Yamate 13—the former home of a European family around which visitors are free to walk.
