Pearl Sea Resort is a beautiful place to drop by and go for a ride on a Pirate Ship or any other form to see the 99 Islands that surround the Sasebo bay. There is beautiful scenario and it's a nice change from the normal. Great ice cream too and Sasebo Burger.

This is a very nice outing. The coast line in this area of Japan has hundreds of small islands. The Pearl Queen takes you on an hour long trip. There was a guide over the loud speaker that spoke both Japanese and English. The water is very clear and the scenery is wonderful. I stood on the back of the... More

Good Aquarium with lots of exhibits about the surrounding water. Impressive jellyfish display done with a mystical quality theme. Dolphin show is a great time. They are very talented. It has many exhibits and you can get your own pearl out of an oyster - Guaranteed.

We went on a weekday and it was pretty quiet, Most of the visitors aseemed to have come by tour bus or by car; we took the city bus and it was easy to find the place. It was a cold and windy day. We could see oyster and pearl farms as we enjoyed the cruise around the islands. The... More

The resort comprised of Cruise excursion terminal, Kujukushima Aquarium, souvenir shops and restaurants. Cruise pamphlet available in different languages and narration during the cruise ride was in both Japanese and English. Felt the 50 minutes cruise (1200 yen) gone by quickly as the scenery of 99 Islands was so amazing. We went to the top deck to enjoy the gentle... More
