Kawachi Toge Pass川内峠
This is a gently sloping prairie over 6.4 times the size of Tokyo Dome occupying approximately 30 hectares. From the summit one has a view of the Ninety-Nine Islands, the Genkai Sea as well as Iki Island and Tsushima Island further away. In spring Hirado azaleas bloom profusely, in summer the grasses are a radiant green, and in autumn Japanese pampas grass covers the land as far as the eye can see. In the winter the fields are set ablaze to prevent serious fires and promote the cultivation of young grass, and many tourists come to see this spectacular sight.

Nagasaki Main 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.
