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

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.
