Nagasaki is situated on the extreme western point of the four main island of Japan, on the northwestern side of the island Kyushi. The city is built around a natural deep harbor and the rest of the city winds around- and up and down- the more than 100 mountains in the city limits. Nagasaki has a unique history. It was the first place in Japan to have contact with the West beginning in the late sixteenth century and then was Japan's only port open to foreign trade for the 250 years of national seclusion during the Tokugawa era, until Japan re-opened in the mid-nineteenth century.
