How to enjoy Kujukushima-1

How to enjoy Kujukushima

Stretching north from Sasebo Port to Hirado, this area of sea covering approximately 25 km, has a complex sawtooth coastline interwoven with 208 islands and deep inlets creating a scene of natural beauty. People live on only four of the islands, with the rest remaining uninhabited. With more than 80% of the 288.5 km long coast retaining a natural coastline, almost the entire area was designated as Saikai National Park in 1955.
With the highest island density in Japan, forests of evergreens and broadleaf trees cast their shadows over the water surface, as gentle waves quietly roll into the many inlets that are home to a diverse range of creatures. Ever changing its expression with the movement of the sun and play of light, seasonal flowers and birds add to the color of the landscape which is sure to please no matter how many times you visit.
