Going To Nagasaki
In this article, I would tell about my experience going to Nagasaki. From Huis Ten Bosch Station, I took Sea Side Runner Train bound for Nagasaki Station at 14.46. You can see the picture, train is sea blue, describing itself as seaside runner. This train connects Sasebo in north and Nagasaki in south, two biggest city in Nagasaki Prefecture.It needed 72 minutes for me to travel through 67.8 kilometers to Nagasaki Station, and it costs 1430 Yen. Because of tiredness, I slept for about 40 minutes so I missed the beautiful view of Omura Bay.
I arrived in Nagasaki Station on 15.58. After taking a nap, I got my strength back. I went to tourist information places and took a Nagasaki Map. Inside the Nagasaki Station building I saw this board, “Sekai Shin Dai San Yakkei Nagasaki”. The night view of Nagasaki is the three best view of the world. I couldn’t wait for this trip.
Nagasaki is about 150 kms from Fukuoka on the western coast. It is a hilly city, famous for being the second city to be destroyed by an atomic bomb.
If you go to Nagasaki, you’d better visit these three places: Nagasaki Peace Park, The Atomic Bomb Hypocentre Park, The Atomic Bomb Museum. These 3 places are close together, and you can catch a northbound tram #1 or #3, flat fare 120 Yen, from the tram stop in the middle of the road outside Nagasaki JR station. Since first I went to Huis Ten Bosch, I didn’t have much time in Nagasaki. So I couldn’t visit these three historical places. I really reccomend these place for you.
The time was 16.00 over when I got the Nagasaki City map, so I headed for the tram bound for Oura Tenshudo Catholic Church in rush. I had to visit this church as my priest told much about Nagasaki and Christianity, and also this historical Church.
