Local Sightseeing, All
Information not currently available.
Approximately 8½ Hours
Visit Saikai National Park, located 31 miles north of Nagasaki and noted for its beautiful coastline along the Bay of Kujukushima (99 Islands). Dotted in the bay are many small islands, adding further beauty to this intricate setting. A two-hour drive through the rolling countryside from Nagasaki will bring you to the heart of this natural wonderland, where you will take a cruise among the beautiful Kujukushima Islands if weather permits. Enjoy a western-style lunch before departing for Mt Yumihari with a spectacular view over Saikai National Park, which includes the Sakai Bridge and the islands. From here, you’ll drive to the bridge and see for yourself why it is well known for its views of tidal swirls—a phenomenon created by the crashing current in the narrow channel. Return to the ship after this full day of natural wonders and beautiful scenery.
Wear comfortable walking shoes. Participants must negotiate stairs and/or uneven surfaces.
