Nice historic district but small than previously taught, and seems like there are a lot of food stalls inside too

Not much to see. The street is very short. It took only fewer than 10 minutes of walk to finish. Besides, almost every store sells similar things: various kinds of pork buns. Not much to see indeed.

Nagasaki chinatown is a must visit during Chinese New Year. The whole area is paraded with beautiful lanterns. If you are visiting on a regular day, there’s not really that much going around, some few shops here and some Chinese cuisine there. I really recommend visiting on Chinese New Year! It was amazing

Chinatown with plenty of shops for both food and souvenirs to wonder and admire.

The district is much smaller than I thought, most of the stores were closed. If you compare to Kobe or Yokohama, you will be very disappointed.
