Ikinoshima Island (壱岐島)
"This island in the Genkai Sea is the 20th largest in Japan besides those of Okinawa. Located at a prime spot for maritime traffic, it was described in the ancient documents of the Gishiwajinden and the Nihon Shoki. This long history gained it certification as one of the Japan Heritage sites in 2015. Besides natural sites like ""Onino Ashiato (Devil's Footprint)"" with its connection to the legend of Onigashima and Tatsunoshima Island, which can only be visited between March and November, it has a diversity of other popular tourist spots including burial mounds, ruins, and Iki Nanasha (Seven shrines). There are also a number of annual events like the Ikinoshima Island New Year Marathon and Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine's Iki Daidai Kagura. This ancient ritual music and dance has been designated an Important Intangible Cultural Property. "

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.
