Is it possible to visit the ghost town on the Hashima Island (the location set for Skyfall and Inception movie)?
Do they accept US dollars in Nagasaki
Hello, We will visit Nagasaki by ship, and was wondering if the cruise ship terminal is very far from the city centre of Nagasaki.
Are there interesting things to see by walking around near the port, or would a "city sights" type tour organised by the ship be recommended?
Also, if there are several tours to choose from, what would be the top 2 sights we should see on a visit to Nagasaki?
I am having trouble booking a hotel in Unzen for November 5, 2012. The web booking pages do not seem to provide availability information beyond September 30, 2012. Any suggestions?
I was in sasebo in 1968-69, is there still a bar called three Ace's and was it on the corner of the block and a block or two from paradise alley. I would like to get a hold of someone that lives in sasebo that we could exchange e-mails.
I would like to go to Sasebo for 3 days and spend a night in Huis Ten Bosch.
I searched for the these hotels homepage in Huis Ten Bosch, but failed. Every time I click it, room reservation on various websites.
I need the e-mail contact address of these hotels. Anyone knows it?
1. Hotel Okura JR Huis Ten Bosch
2. Hotel Nikko Huis Ten Bosch
3. Hotel Europe Nagasaki
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO GET FROM SASEBO TO YOKOSUKA JAPAN????
Can someone please send me the directions on how to get to the War museum and Peace Park from the international shipping terminal at Nagasaki? There are six of us on a cruise and we would like to do this tour on our own rather than with a large group. EG what trains etc to catch.
Many thanks in advance for your help. Cathy
I'm planning to visit Nagasaki soon.
Kindly help me with these questions. Thanks.
a) Is there any HSBC bank in Nagasaki?
b) How's the weather is like in Nagasaki between October- January?
c) Will there be snow?
d) Is there any public transport that I can take from Fukuoka International
Airport to Nagasaki directly?
e) How's the daily expenses in Nagasaki ( lodging/ transportation/ food)? Is
USD30 sufficient for a day?
Our cruise ship visits Nagasaki March 28. We were there last year and have toured the city. This time we'd like to take a train ride to a town or village within say, 100 km radius where we might see Japanese life from another perspective - also hopefully blossoms.
Any advice will be much appreciated.
Would like to visit Sasebo but I'm curious as to what airport/airline is best to fly into from USA/Calif/San Diego ?
I am looking for stores that sell these items. Any suggestions? I am in the Huis Ten Bosch area.

We will leave Nagasaki and travel to Hakata/Fukuoma and take the bullet train to Osaka. When we transfer from the Ltd. Exp. Kamome train to the Shinkansen Nozomi are these in the same station or how do I get from one area to the other? Also, will I be able to buy just one ticket from Nagasaki that will take me through to Osaka or will I need to purchase another ticket in Hakata? Boy do I feel stupid. Thank you
Am arriving at Nagasaki Airport -- besides taxi, how can I get to the hotel. Do I take a bus from airport? Which one? Where would I get off?

Hi, while I was walking back to the port where our cruise ship was docked, I noticed a small park near the harbour with a small parking lot. There was a metal leaf with a small box next to it (I believe it is a motor) in the middle of each parking slot. I saw a driver backup to the parking spot and the metal leaf would rise to stop the car from pulling away. I am not sure when did the leaf risen. I think the driver had to go to the stand next to the entrance to punch in his or her parking slot number and pay a fee before the leaf came down.
I am not really sure how this work, but it fascinates me.
Does anybody can tell me how this mechanism works??
Can anyone tell me what the schedules are like traveling from either Misumi or Kumamoto to Shimabara? I am traveling by train and wonder which is easier - to depart for Shimabara from Kumamoto port or to take the train on to Misumi. Logistically, which is easier and how often do ferries run? Thanks so much for any help!
I apologize for the multiple postings, but my wife and I will be travelling in Kyushu with our two year old daughter. We have friends in Kumamoto and will be spending the bulk of our time there, but would also like to spend 1-2 nights in another location. Nagasaki and Beppu are the two places which occur to me, but we are open to others. Does anyone else have a good idea, we go for both relaxation and sightseeing.
I was in Sasebo back in 1973-75.Is there still a bar called the Westener in sailor town?There was also a place called Three Ace's that had the best fried rice I ever ate. Thanks Mac
Will be in Nagasaki for about 7 hours - will be docked at the port so close to the tram and the city centre.
Would like suggestions for things to see and do and places to eat (Japanese food, not western).
Obviously will be visiting the Peace Park/memorial.
Is there somewhere close to the port where I can get a one day tram pass?
Is the cable car ride up the mountain worth it for the view?

Can anybody tell me what is going to happen to my favorite theme park in Japan? Is there any chance that it will close down, or has a new buyer already been found? What other major changes are in store? I've been to the website, but the English page doesn't tell me anything new.
