Sasebo is well known for Kujukushima, known as 99 islands, though it is in fact made up of 208 islands. There are mainly two ways to see the islands - either by boat or at a view point. Personally, I think it's better to see...More

Beautiful observation point with a fun little park. There's a rapeseed maze in the middle that's just beautiful when in bloom, and there are goats to visit! Offers a lovely view.

This place offers a really good view of the islands and a small park nearby. Other than that, people just come here for the view and picture taking.

There are 4 overlook of the kujukushima (99 islands). Tenkaiho is the closest one and more photographers choose to take sunset pictures here. Bring your camera and check the sunset time to plan your trip here.

More than an hour driving from nagasaki. So if it is only to go for this place. I would say. Don't go. As it is just a view with a flower garden next to it. If you are passing by it is surely worth it.
