Iki is an island located between Nagasaki Prefecture and Tsushima. It is a land rich in nature, and many tourists visit every year for seaside leisure activities such as fishing and diving.

The highlights of Iki are the rich nature such as Saruiwa, Oni no Footprints, and Makizaki Park, all located 15 to 20 minutes by car from Gonoura Port. Iki Dolphin Park, where you can interact with cute dolphins, is about 30 minutes by car from Gonoura Port.

Although it is a small island, it is convenient to rent a car if you want to sightsee. We also recommend taking a leisurely drive around the island while enjoying each of the sightseeing spots.

Tsushima is located in the Genkai Sea in Nagasaki Prefecture, and is the 10th largest island in Japan in terms of area, and is an island rich in nature with virgin forests remaining.

Tsushima Wildlife Conservation Center is also open to tourists. You can see the rare Tsushima leopard cat that lives in Tsushima. Other famous local products include ``Tonchan'', which was introduced by the Koreans, shochu from Tsushima, and turban shells and turban shells.

Tsushima is a very long and narrow island, so if you want to visit the famous spots on your trip, we recommend renting a car. You can enjoy scenic spots while slowly driving to the northwestmost tip of Japan on National Route 382, ​​which cuts across the island.

Hashima (Gunkanjima)

Hashima is an island located in Nagasaki City, Nagasaki Prefecture, and was nicknamed ``Gunkanjima'' because its appearance resembles a warship. The entire island remains as it was when it flourished, and was registered as a World Cultural Heritage Site in 2015.

Coal was discovered on Hashima in 1810, and as the amount of coal produced increased, the island experienced rapid growth, and in 1960 there were approximately 5,300 people living there. As the main energy source shifted to oil, Gunkanjima declined, and in 1974 Gunkanjima became an uninhabited island.
