Hilton expands flagship presence in Japan with the opening of Hilton Nagasaki

Hilton has announced the opening of Hilton Nagasaki, thus expanding its flagship presence in the Asian country. This is Hilton’s first hotel in Nagasaki and second property in the Kyushu region.


Conveniently located to the west of the Nagasaki Station, Hilton Nagasaki’s central location offers easy access to Nagasaki’s most popular sights and landmarks such as Mount Inasa, as well as UNESCO World Heritage sites such as the Glover Garden and Oura Cathedral. The hotel is directly connected to the new Dejima Messe Nagasaki convention centre.

Alan Watts, President, Asia Pacific, Hilton, said:

The opening of Hilton Nagasaki is especially significant as it marks our 500th hotel in Asia Pacific. Reaching such a milestone during this uncertain time is a testament to Hilton’s resilience and commitment to setting the benchmark for hospitality in the world’s most sought-after destinations. Nagasaki has long represented a gateway to Japan, and we are delighted to partner with Gloverhill Inc. to bring the first Hilton hotel to the city as we continue to expand our footprint in key destinations across the region.

Akiyoshi Matsufuji, President and the Representative Director of Gloverhill Inc., said:

Nagasaki is undergoing a period of great transformation — one that occurs only every 100 years. This includes the opening of one of the largest convention centers in West Japan, the upcoming launch of the West Kyushu Shinkansen which provides great access to Nagasaki, and the urban redevelopment of the site of the former Nagasaki Prefectural Government Office building. In such a time, we are honored to manage Hilton Nagasaki and contribute to Nagasaki’s tourism industry. We will work closely with our local partners to offer guests an outstanding experience with hospitality that is truly unique to Nagasaki.
