Yet another place Japan has to offer that is rich in heritage and history. Understand, all the history is not positive. However, the Japanese have not hid it and it is available to view. This Chinatown is conveniently close to Nagasaki's "Ginza" which makes it easy to transition into the downtown area. Worth stopping for if you are in the area!

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.

Very very small. Many Chinese restaurants and all the food is very good.

A pretty small Chinatown though there are traces of "chinese" influence on the structures, designs and food in the restaurant.
