Nagasaki is a very good city for digital nomads. It reminds me a little bit of Bansko (Bulgaria). It's a place for the people who already set up their business, might have a family, they want to come here to get a nice house up on the hill and live. Nagasaki is beautiful, next to nature, affordable, friendly people, it has history, there are places to visit. The infrastructure is wonderful, it’s a good place to live.

I definitely recommend digital nomads to check out Nagasaki. There is rich history here, if you love hiking,it’s a good thing, or if you like the sea, there are options available. And the internet speed is a lot faster here, I was pleasantly surprised by the connection speed. If I stay longer, I would stay in Mogi, it was peaceful and quiet, I love being by water. Nagasaki is “Peace” in multiple ways, that you’ll find out.

Nagasaki is so beautiful! There is a lot of nature,beautiful scenery, and you can have a relaxing time.Focusing on work time, it’s really possible, which is amazing! It has so much more history than what we know abroad. Up until I came here, I only knew Nagasaki was the second city where A bomb was dropped, but that's not all. That’s only one of many things. That's not what it’s all about. That I would learn about more.

Nagasaki really means a lot to me, with friends I made as a digital nomad. They always greet me with such warmth, saying, "Welcome back!" whenever I visit. We share meals, stories, and I love every moment there. Walking its charming alleys, steep slopes, and seeing cats, it's all so charming. Nagasaki isn't just a place, it's an experience full of diverse culture and memories. Can't wait to head back soon!

 I am interested in digital nomads who are looking for beach destinations that are not too crowded but not too rural either. I wonder if they can visit the Japanese countryside and make an economic and social impact on local communities. Digital nomads can play a significant role in Japan's future by helping to sustain local economies and solve social issues.

 Nagasaki, my hometown, is known for its tragic history and attracts many tourists who visit the museum for a day and leave. However, there is much more to Nagasaki,

and staying for more than a week can offer a unique and interesting local experience. You can enjoy beautiful beaches, cycling along the seaside, exploring historical sites, and experiencing the city's lively atmosphere. Nagasaki was the first place in Japan to trade with China and European countries and has a rich history and culture.

 Nagasaki also has a spirit of global-mindedness, and pride since it has one of the largest global shipbuilding industries. Many workers come from all over the world, and

we have a top international institution for infectious diseases. Many students also come from around the world.

 We are thrilled to have more digital nomads in Nagasaki, who can stay for the long term and make this their home away from home in Asia. Our program supports all digital nomads who want to explore the unique experience of both a leisurely life in a quiet fishing village and the city's lively atmosphere. If you are interested, please join our online community, and we warmly welcome you to our town!
