Nagasaki (長崎) or “Long Cape” was Japan’s second oldest port open to foreign trade (after Hirado) and the only Japanese port permitted by the Tokugawa shogunate between 1639 and 1859 when all other ports were closed.
In the early 20th century the city became a major shipbuilding centre; it was this industry that led to the bomb which was dropped on August 9, 1945, and destroyed the innermost portion of Nagasaki; between 60,000 and 80,000 persons were killed.
Nagasaki’s mission today is to send a message of peace and harmony to the world.
