Amakusa consists of 120 islands and is located in the southwestern part of Japan. It is famous for its beautiful sea.
You can travel to Amakusa by train called "A Train", which has a bar counter serving alcohol and soft drinks. This tour provides ideal spots for viewing the saw-toothed coastline of Amakusa and the small islands scattered across the sea. A sightseeing boat commanding views of the five bridges from the deck cruises past 30-odd islands of varying sizes spotted in Amakusa-Matsushima in about 40 minutes. After land on Hondo you can enjoy traditional Japanese cuisine made with home-grown or locally-sourced ingredients.
