Nagasaki - General Info

Description:

Nagasaki is a large natural harbor on the NW coast of the island of Kyushu.

Dejima, in downtown Nagasaki, was the only port open to foreigners (specifically, the Dutch) during Japan’s isolation period from approx. 1639 to 1868 and Nagasaki became one of the first ports open to all foreign ships after the isolation period ended.

The city is associated with one terrible moment during World War II, memorialized at the city’s Atomic Bomb Museum and Peace Park.

While this is a port of entry, it is not recommended for yacht arrivals. See Japan Clearance for a list of recommended ports of entry/exit.

Entrance Notes and Cautions:

Nagasaki is approached along a steadily narrowing channel lined by the huge Mitsubishi dockyards. An elegant grey-silver suspension bridge crosses the inlet and about a mile further on, to starboard, is the small, artificially indented rectangle of water called Dejima Wharf.

Position: 

32° 44.61′N, 129° 52.10′E (marina)

    I was almost put off going to Dejima Marina by the above comment but another yacht insisted I would be missing a wonderful experience. We contacted Dejima by email and received an affirmative response even though it was Golden Week.

    We were greeted in a most cordial manner and during our delightful stay at this incomparable city, side location met several Japanese sailors who provided us with helpful advice and the manager Tanaka-san went out of his way to make certain we were enjoying our stay.

    There was a modest extra charge for my crew but I had already experienced this at another marina. My wife joined the yacht there an no additional charge was requested. Nagasaki and Dejima was a highlight of our time in Japan so please take the negative perspective with a grain of salt. One last point: The officials were courteous as usual and the most efficient we have encountered.

    Posted on behalf of Eric Friedli:

    Things have changed in Nagasaki Dedjima, no friendly manager anymore; priority is given to national (mainly motor) boats how are based in Dedjima all year round. The charge is from the first day (4700 Yens for 35 feet) plus a 1080 Yens for each crew to be registered.

    In addition, visitors are not allowed to enter the marina if they are not registered, so friends how to want to come to your boat for a drink have to pay 1080 Yens each… (First time I see this in 11 years sailing around the world), anyway, looks like this only apply to foreigners.

    Also very complicated relation with local authorities with a lot of pressure from coast guard and police. Clearly, the Nagasaki local administration has made a turn and try now to keep foreign yachts a way of Nagasaki. It’s my 5th time cruising Japan and I suggest cruiser to better to give a big miss to Nagasaki as there are many friendly, trouble free and hospitable places to visit in Japan…
