Nagasaki is a port city on the western side of Kyushu that has played a hugely important role in many different aspects of Japan’s history. It was the first dedicated port of trade with the West, the place at which Christianity began to take root in the country, and Japan’s only sanctioned port of trade with the Dutch during its 250-year period of isolation. Outside of Japan, however, Nagasaki is perhaps most well known as the city, along with Hiroshima, on which the US dropped an atomic bomb during World War II.
