Description :The oldest of these so-called Nagasaki pictures (Nagasaki-zu) were two panoramic prints by the artist Chikujuken that served as guides to the city of Nagasaki for visitors, who took them home as stylish souvenirs. They were such a useful guide for finding the foreign trading stations and the anchorage's of Dutch and Chinese vessels that they were continued for many years. The influence of this type of panorama print can be seen in the Yokohama pictures of the mid-nineteenth century and in the bird's-eye perspectives of such pictures as A Comprehensive View of Yokosuka that were still being published after the Meiji Restoration of 1868. A bird's-eye view of Nagasaki harbour.
The Dutch V.O.C. trading post on Dejima clearly marked with Dutch flag.

Nagasaki was the port city of the Hizen Province (now Nagasaki Prefecture), and after 1570 began to prosper from the trade with Portugal. The government imposed a policy of seclusion on Japan in the early 17th century and since Nagasaki became the only port open to foreign trade. All the Dutch traders moved their commercial houses their in 1641.
The piece of fan shaped land that juts out into Nagasaki Bay, attached to the shore by a bridge is the island of Dejima. Constructed in 1634 and first home of the Portuguese, later the Dutch traders. In the left below Dejima , in the rectangular artificial islands were placed the warehouses of the Chinese merchants. The map shows much activity of the foreign ships. In the bay are anchored Dutch ships and Chinese Junks. One Dutch ship, undertow by lines of tugboats, is firing its cannons in greeting.

All through the Edo period, Nagasaki along with Kyoto, Osaka and Edo was the scene of a flourishing publishing business in woodblock prints. Maps of Nagasaki were first published in the 1670s and from the 1770s on they came out in a constant stream.
