Oranda-zaka ("Dutch slope") refers to the steep streets of a pleasant hillside residential area of Nagasaki. Western merchants, most notably from the Netherlands, settled in the area in the second half of the 19th century. The former residences of several Western merchants are exhibited in the nearby Glover Garden open air museum.

Get There and Around

The Dutch slopes are a short walk from the "Shiminbyoin-mae" tram stop on the line number five.
