In Japan, there are a number of Confucius shrines, but the Nagasaki one is known as “the most spectacular” of them all. Its biggest attraction is that it can be used as a unique venue with its traditional Chinese atmosphere and architecture. The square, lined with 72 statues of wise men, will transport you to the land of The Last Emperor. In addition, you can enjoy the very popular Face Changing show and other perfomances, along with catered meals. It is also a perfect spot for seeing Nagasaki’s unique “cultural gradation” from Shinchi Chinatown and the Confucius Shrine to the foreign settlement.
