Hello, it’s Tomocchi! ☆
Access to the main tourist attractions in Nagasaki City just got more convenient!
On April 8th, Nagasaki Bus launched a new bus route that lets you go from “Glover Garden Entrance” bus stop to the “Atomic Bomb Museum” bus stop without changing buses. The “Glover Garden Entrance” bus stop is close to Glover Garden and Oura Cathedral, as well as the Matsugae International Terminal, where cruise ships berth.
It’s a regular bus, so the normal fare applies, but if you use the 1 day free pass recommended for tourists (￥500 for adults), you can easily make your way around the stops on this route, including Glover Garden, Oura Cathedral, The Dutch Slope, Nagasaki Shinchi Chinatown, Dejima, The Peace Park, Atomic Bomb Museum and the city center.
Also, up until now tourists have had to walk 5 mins to the Atomic Bomb Museum from the bus stop on the main national road. However, a new bus stop has been made on the “doorstep” of the Atomic Bomb Museum (Atomic Bomb Museum bus stop)! It’s really convenient that you can now go right to the door of the museum!
Whether you’re a tourist or a local, it’s worth giving it a try.
●Frequency: About once every 30 mins (14-15 buses a day)
●Route: “Glover Garden Entrance” to “Atomic Bomb Museum”
