This is unnecessarily hyped tourist destination when it is just a slope on a hill to return from the Dutch Cathedral and is lined with souvenir shops . It makes a good backdrop for pictures too but that's all about it .

All the former foreigner houses in this area are barren, some turned into photo galleries of old times. Reminiscent of a similar quarter in Koba which may be a more interesting. If you don't get there, don't feel you've missed anything. No 1. and 2 sites in Nagasaki, which I loved -- so historically reminiscent of Hong Kong and other... More

We went here without much direction, and getting around in this area was kind of hard. The slope is REALLY steep, and it was a pain to navigate in the car. If possible, I would recommend walking because it would be easier to take in the sights that way.

I thought it was an ok trip. Nothing much to see. The first house on the left is open for public, and you can get some coffee and castella.

This slope is called Netherlands street. Old days traders from Netherlands had their houses and offices around this slope. Plants covered walls of the slope. It's nostalgic atmosphere.

Well, if you like walking this isn't that bad, but I wouldn't recommend it to people who have bad knees. It really isn't that bad, some of the houses were open and you can go in and look around. It is a pleasant look into the past for free.

It's a quiet street that leads through one of the colonial districts. Some nice houses and that's it, an easy detour when on the way to Glover Garden.
