Overview

Nagasaki is one of the largest cities in Japan. It is located on the south-western coast of Kyushu, the southernmost of the four mainland islands of Japan. Nagasaki is also known as was the second city on which an atomic bomb was dropped by the U.S. during World War II. Nagasaki lies at the head of a long bay which forms the best natural harbor on the island of Kyushu. With an estimated the population of 450,000. The city was rebuilt after the war, though dramatically changed. New temples were built, and new churches as well, since the Christian presence never died out and even increased significantly after the war. Nagasaki remains first and foremost a port city, supporting a rich shipping industry and setting a brilliant example of resolve and harmony.
