Dragon Boat Races

At the end of July every year teams from around Nagasaki prefecture gather in Nagasaki City near Dejima wharf for the biggest dragon boat race in the prefecture.

Several teams race a short loop and each race is over in a matter of minutes but the excitement starts well before and never really ends.

You can also try your own hand at paddling a dragon boat. The event usually coincides with the summer festival which includes tons of food stalls and beautiful fireworks accompanied by music.
