Unzen Onsen (雲仙温泉)
A hot spring district located in Unzen-Amakusa National Park, Japan's first national park, and one of its biggest appeals is its commanding view of Mt. Unzen and the many other 1,000 meter high mountains in the area. The area is said to have been developed as a hot spring resort some 350 years ago by a man named Kato Zenuemon and later grew and expanded as a popular destination for foreigners visiting Nagasaki as a place to escape the summer heat. The area's colorless or milky white acidic sulfur springs are strongly antibacterial and are said to aid in recovery from fatigue and promote health in addition to easing eczema, frostbite, cuts, and other ailments.

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.
