SHIMABARA
  • HISTORY
  • LOCAL DELICACIES

Located on the east coast of Nagasaki Prefecture on the Ariake Sea, and backed by the fearsome Mount Mayuyama, the castle town of Shimabara offers plenty of historical and cultural delights.
Ideal as a day trip from Nagasaki City, or for a one-night stay in one of the nearby onsen hotels, Shimabara provides a slice of Kyushu’s relaxed hospitality.
One of the 100 hidden towns in Japan chosen for this publication.
