Beautiful sandy beach with a long stretch of lush pine trees. One of the best beaches I have seen in Japan. Great scenic combination of sky, ocean, islands and mountains. Downside is many trashes and bottles scattered around the beach.

We took the path from the Karatsu Seaside hotel through the forest. The trees are beautiful and unusual. Well worth a walk or bike ride. (Guests of the hotel can use the bikes for free. Just ask at the reception desk.)

Niji No Matsubara (“Rainbow Pine Grove” in Saga) – a grove about 3+ miles long with million+ black pine trees. We viewed this from atop Kagamiyama observation deck with a nice view of the Genkai-Nada seaside.
