A charming café inside an old-fashion station by the sea
【Day 1】Chiwata Station & Café-1
This retro wooden station is located on the edge of Omura Bay with its platform only a few meters away from water.

The sunset view across Omura Bay from the station is particularly attractive, and it is also the perfect spot for photography enthusiasts. In addition to its retro exterior, inside the station itself is a small yet cozy cafe called "Chiwata Shokudo". Run by an incredibly friendly young couple, this cafe is well known for its curry rice (it really is great!), and it is the perfect place to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee while you wait for the next train.

【Day 2】Nagasaki Bio Park-1
The Nagasaki Bio Park is truly a fun and unique experience for visitors of all ages! Most of the animals here are not caged, but instead are enclosed within an area that is designed to imitate their natural habitats. Most enclosures can be accessed by visitors, and one can even feed and pet some of the animals including the popular capybaras, squirrel monkeys, kangaroos and many more! Of course, there are also places within their enclosures that the animals can go to and rest if they don’t want to interact with humans.

At the Nagasaki Bio Park, every consideration has been made and every detail of the animal’s natural habitats have been carefully researched to ensure maximum comfort for the animals, and it really shows!
