HEALTH & WELLNESS PROGRAM
Nagasaki is a city known for it's tragic history but it is also one of the most advanced cities in Japan in terms of medical advances. Nagasaki is not only the place for tragic history as you think. Nagasaki was a most advanced place for health and medicine in Japan once before.
Dejima (Exit island in Japanese), Nagasaki was a only world trading spot in Japan from 1641 to 1854 due to the policy of seclusion. Therefore, Nagasaki was a center of medicine, military science, and astronomy for more than 200 years.
The history and culture in Nagasaki are unique in Japan. The impact from trading with Asian and European countries and tragic events in history such as the persecution of the Christians and later the atomic bombing in WW2 and many natural disasters made Nagasaki special.
And now, Nagasaki is becoming a hot spot for wellness tourism in Japan.
