Stairway in Nishizaka, Nagasaki

Nagasaki is full of steep stairs, connected to lanes, pathways, and various retaining walls. This one, near the main train station and leading up towards the 26 Martyrs Memorial, creates an interesting building site for the small purple mixed-use building that hugs its side. Adding to the complexity is the typical house form that sits on top of the 3 (or 4?) storey "base".
