This museum is part of an old district and is kept very well. There you can rent specific costumes and after dressed up you can parade through the site foe example an hour. Ladies were ver nice dressed up. Man's dress was so so.

We spent over two hours here! Lots to see (and read), a great way to get some of the very interesting history about Japan's trading history with Portugal and the Netherlands. A highlight in Nagasaki for sure.
