The hustle and bustle of a Chinatown and it's all part of the experience. If you have a keen ear, when walking down Shinchimachi, you'll notice that the lyrical Japanese of spoken conversations, change to the more confrontational Mandarin or Cantonese. Also that Japanese politeness gets toned down a few notches. The food on offering definitely changes to that of the Chinese cuisine, as expected.

Well, with few current Chinese... a bit down at the heels. A pleasant walkthrough at best. Food reviews make it clear that it's Japanese Chinese food on offer.

We had an amazing time here as it was also Nagasaki Lantern Festival 2019. No shortage of festivities and so much to see. If you're ever in Nagasaki Chinatoen during the Chinese New Year, the lanterns illuminating the city streets will guide you to areas of cultural interest for the Chinese New Year Celebration.

Super short street. Mire than 60% of shops closed on the Tuesday we were here for some reason. Check to find out.
Did not venture up to the chinese settlement houses in case disappointed.
