    Nagasaki Pref. Saseboshi Funakoshichou 2172
    Founded in 1961 as Sasebo Municipal Subtropical Zoo and Botanical Garden, this park was renamed Kujukushima Zoo and Botanical Garden, Mori Kirara fifty years later. The theme of its displays is “Kujukushima: Nature and Healing.” Its penguin pavilion opened in 2014 with Japan’s first ultra shallow water tank, which allows visitors to observe the penguins’ lives fully. Furthermore, the park’s Rose Festivals, held in spring and autumn in the Rose Garden, are well known.

    If you present proof that you live in the city of Sasebo, you can get in for cheaper. Good penguin exhibit, where you walk under the glass-bottom pool and look up to see them swimming above you...

Nagasaki Areas


This hidden corner of the country is rural Japan at its best, where underground activity is to thank for active volcanoes and bubbling natural hot springs along the Shimabara Peninsula as well as the crystal clear waters of the Goto Islands off the west coast. Less well known than Hiroshima’s Peace Memorial Park, Nagasaki commemorates its own past at the Nagasaki Peace Park, which sits alongside the charming Meganebashi stone bridge and a mix of religious buildings with beautiful architecture, such as the Zen Buddhist Sofukuji Temple, the Confucian Shrine, and the Oura Christian Church.
