This is the general name for the 208 islands in an area covering approximately 25 kilometers from outside Sasebo Port to Hirado. Although it has the highest island density in Japan, only four of them are inhabited, and most of the coastline is preserved as is. There is the Kujuku Island aquarium Umikirara that reproduces the sea of the Kujuku Islands, observation facilities and a cruise ship, and besides being able to come into contact with rich nature such as the complex topography of the rias coast and sea life, you can also enjoy seafood including Kujuku Island oysters and activities like sea kayaking.

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.
