An intermezzo. There is a nice park nearby Dejima wharf. I bought a beef croquette and walked around there. Suddenly something snatched my croquette while I was talking to my friend. My friend screamed and I tried to attack the snatcher. Unfortunately, the snatcher flew away. It was a hawk.
Nagasaki has a tragic history of being bombed during the World War II. A lot of innocents became victims and the stories I read in the memorial were so heart-breaking. However, the people in Nagasaki moved on though they still remember the tragedy. You can go around pretty easily by tram. I chose to walk from the nearest tram station to the sites.
Take time to walk back to the history of Nagasaki….
There are several others places for this historical journey of Nagasaki too in the same area.
Another specialty you can only find here is kakuni manjyu. It looks like white Chinese steam bun folded with roasted pork in between.
