Nagasaki was one of the first cities in Japan to accept foreigners for trade. It is a city rich in scenic variety, historic and religious monuments. It was the second city to suffer a nuclear bomb in World War II, but the bomb missed its target somewhat, exploding over a catholic church instead of a shipyard. That, combined with a more hilly terrain, resulted in less devastation than that which occured in Hiroshima.
