Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Nagasaki Peace Park, Matsuyamamachi, Nagasaki 852-8118 Nagasaki Prefecture

Nagasaki Peace Park today is a very peaceful place to stroll about and reflect on this frightening event in mankind’s history. Let’s hope that the mistakes of the past are never repeated again and the world can live peacefully without Nuclear threats of destruction. A walk around this solemn but special place always provides me with the strength and resolve that the mistakes of the past happen again and we should always do everything humanly possible to make this happen as a human race.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum, 7-8 Hirano-machi, Nagasaki Nagasaki Prefecture

It is a very sobering place and definitely not for the faint hearted as the stories, exhibits and pictures are extremely graphic. There hasn’t been a time when i haven’t seen someone crying out loud and or emotionally uncontrollable. This museum definitely isn’t every one’s cup of tea. However, it is important to remember history and not to forget about the past as this is the way we don’t make the same mistakes of the past.

Duration: 35 minutes

Stop At: Saikai Bridge, Sasebo Nagasaki Prefecture

Hario Straits is one of Japan’s three fastest flowing currents and is famous for its whirlpools created by the seawater from the expansive Omura Bay rushing through the narrow strait during the changing tides. The rate of the whirlpools increases particularly at springtime and there is also a beautiful park where we can enjoy a picnic and the seasonal flowers.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Hario Radio Tower, Hario Nakamachi, Sasebo 859-3452 Nagasaki Prefecture

A real historical and important WW2 site that still remains in Nagasaki to this day, is called the Hario Transmission Towers. They were the starting point of the message sent by officials to proceed with the attack on Pearl Harbor. As a result of this, the Hario Transmission Towers will forever be remember if only in an infamous way.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Huis Ten Bosch-cho, Sasebo 859-3243 Nagasaki Prefecture

At the front desk, you will be greeted by multi-lingual robots that will help you check in or check out. At the cloakroom, the robotic arm will store your luggage for you. Mechanic yet somehow human, those fun moments with the robots will warm your heart. Furthermore, once you register your face with our face recognition system, you will be free from the hassle of carrying the room key around or worrying about losing it.
Not only has this robotic technology freed up training and hiring staff but the technologies that have been implemented such as automatic lighting, face recognition, energy usage and wastage prevention not to mention the use of all natural and latest superior building materials to fit in with the concept of the Dutch Theme Park, Huis Ten Bosch which means House in the Woods.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Umegae Sake Brewery, 317, Jomacho, Sasebo 859-3237 Nagasaki Prefecture

Every now and then in my travels around Nagasaki Prefecture you come upon a special place that instantly makes a strong and lasting impression on you. Umegae Sake Brewery is just one of these places and as a result of this positive and uplifting experience we intend to make this location a regular attraction on our full day tours.
There is a variety of Sake (Japanese Rice Wine) Shochu (Japanese Distilled Spirits) and Liqueurs, more than enough to satisfy everyone`s requirements.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Katashima Torpedo Base Ruin, 150 Mitsugoego, Kawatana-cho, Higashisonogi-gun 859-3617 Nagasaki Prefecture

A couple of wrong turns here and there but eventually I located the empty building and explored. What I found was beyond expectations! A massive empty building that was the school`s training facilities with a dock nearby which was the mooring station for the submarine or submarines. Not a lot is known about this place especially in regards to written material but just through visual inspection and using my imagination I could truly picture a scenario where once this place was a running and fully operation Submarine Naval Training Center before and during WW2.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Hasami Ceramics Festival, Yakimono Park Square, Hasami-cho, Higashisonogi-gun Nagasaki Prefecture

Hasami Ceramics Museum is a place that all Ceramic and Porcelain enthusiasts should visit whilst traveling in and around Nagasaki Prefecture. Not only does it display Japanese and specifically Hasami Porcelain but it takes you on a historical tour of ceramics from around the globe and how these influences and techniques from abroad have made it all the way to Japan and into the Hasami Ceramic Community.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Inasayama Observation Deck, 364 Inasamachi, Nagasaki 852-8011 Nagasaki Prefecture

The Mount Inasa Nightview in Nagasaki is a unbelievable place to visit. The daytime views are in a world of there own but in relation to the nighttime view it rates rather poorly in my opinion. Words don’t explain this incredible place like the way they should and this view needs to be seen to be believed. Without a doubt one of the most scenic views in all of Nagasaki and probably in all of Japan. It is a place that I try to bring every visitor and customer that comes to Nagasaki as it really brings out the highlights of everything Nagasaki has to offer in terms of beauty and nature from its scenic location to its panorama.
