The Charm of Nagasaki

Walk across the wet cobble stones of Nagasaki

On February 22 in 2015, my trip to the Nagasaki Lantern Festival came to an end. The next day I would be heading back to Osaka by plane.

For years I had been wanting to go to Nagasaki's Lantern Festival and I finally got my wish. Since I came to Nagasaki on business, I could not cover all the events held at the festival, but I was able to see all the places that I had planned to visit. The smell of the night's rain was wonderful. Although I was there only for a short amount of time, I enjoyed my stay as much as I could, that's how I consoled my list of things to do and places to see was never ending! Not getting enough Nagasaki, I plan to go back there again. Now, where shall I head off to next...

Below are some links to other articles I have written about the Lantern Festival:
