Nagasaki (長崎市, Nagasaki-shi) is the capital city of Nagasaki Prefecture in Japan.[1]

Nagasaki is in the southwest of the island Kyushu.[2]

It has been recognized as a core city since 1997.[3]

History

During the Edo period, Nagasaki was the only port in which trade with other countries was permitted[1] because of the national isolation policy (sakoku).[4]

In the 1870s, Nagasaki became the capital city of the prefecture which evolved from the former province.

Nagasaki was the second of two Japanese cities which were destroyed with an atomic bomb near the end of the Second World War.[1]
