Kujuku Islands

A beautiful bay with scattered islands

Kujuku Islands is the generic name for a group of 208 islands scattered along a 25-km stretch of ocean between Hirado and Sasebo, and is said to have the highest density of islands in Japan.

The contrast between the rias coast and the blue sea of green islands is magnificent.

A sightseeing boat is also in operation to allow visitors to experience the beautiful islands of Kujukujuku Islands up close.
Marine sports such as sea kayaking and yachting are also popular.

Most of the islands are uninhabited or reefs, and there are four inhabited islands: Kuroshima, Takashima, and Maejima, which can be reached from the mainland by bridge.

The entire area is designated as Saikai National Park and is one of the 100 most scenic spots in Japan.
It was certified as a member of the “World’s Most Beautiful Bay Club,” an international NGO.
