About this sight

On land that now makes up part of Nagasaki's Chinatown, this particular neighborhood, otherwise known as the Old Chinese Quarter, was where Chinese traders arriving at the port of Nagasaki were corralled from 1869. The practice began to prevent illegal trade and interaction between Chinese merchants and sailors and Japanese people. The original compound could accommodate up to 2000 people.
