Beautiful!!!!

Very relaxing and beautiful scenery of the islands. We were there Spring 2014 and it was perfect. I highly recommend the boat tour. Sounds cheesy but it was so beautiful!

I went to one of the platform 九十九島石岳展望台. It just requires you walk for 10 minutes after parking. Once you reach the top of the small peak. The view is stunning. It is a good place for you to wait for sunset. There are seats and tables available for you to have a picnic. There are more than 200 small... More

I recommend taking one of the boat trips to view the islands up close, but taking a taxi to any of the view points is a great way to enjoy the islands. On a sunny day you can see amazing views, but the area is quite crowded and it can be difficult to get around on public transport.

It is so beautiful out there. I went in February and was a little too chilly on the deck of the pirate ship, but I wouldn't go inside because it was too pretty. I hope to return in warmer weather!

The cruise was such a beautiful and relaxing experience. Even with the cool weather I loved it, just make sure you bundle up! If you're looking to take some great pictures while in Sasebo, you'll get some great ones of all the small islands around the coast of Sasebo.

The only motivation to visit Sasebo was viewing the beautiful Kujukushima, and it proved to be well worth it. Lovely scenery when cruising around the island. Touched by the gentle breezes, the waves of sun and jade sea water, a spectacular scene in nature to sooth your mind. It would be best to couple the sightseeing by driving to observatory... More

Even on a rainy day, the cruise was enjoyable sailing around the many small islands that dot the coast around Sasebo. They are not inhabited, but make for some great photos and a good hour of relaxation.

Marvelous islands seen from viewing platforms high above the Zoo; but also much worth a visit. I liked especially Kujûkushima and Takashima: history as well as great nature walks.
