When the foreign policy restrictions were abolished, Dejima ceased to serve as Japan's only window to the west and was slowly merged into Nagasaki, as the harbor was expanded by land reclamation. Since the year 2000 Dejima has been under intense reconstruction in order to restore its historical value and many of the original buildings have already been rebuilt to look as they did in the 19th century.
