    Nagasaki Pref. Unzenshi Obamachounzen
    "This marsh located at the eastern foot of Mt. Kinugasa is a few minutes' walk from the hot springs of Unzen, and about 35 minutes by car from Shimabara Station. In the past, they had been active in fumarole activity like ""Daikyokan Jigoku"" in Unzen Jigoku, but about 600 years ago the activity began to stop, peat moss began to grow, and it is now a peat moss marsh rare even in Kyushu that has been designated as a natural monument. You can see Kyushu azaleas, Sasa gracillima and Japanese azaleas in dry areas."

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.
