NAGASAKI WALKS / The Best Way to enjoy Nagasaki is a Short Trip with a Nagasaki local!


About Nagasaki Walks

Nagasaki Walks is a volunteer guide organization that provides hospitality and English guidance for tourists. The tour guides are Nagasaki locals who want to make Nagasaki more accessible to foreign tourists. Not all of them are qualified tour guides, but they all are eager to make your trip to Nagasaki memorable, hassle free and informative. (We can accommodate groups of up to 10 people at a time.)

Our guides are grouped into three categories according to their English ability and knowledge of the sites. Please choose a guide that suits your needs.
