Lose yourself at Nijino Matsubara, considered one of the three greatest pine areas in Japan, with over one million pine trees stretching for 5 km (3 mi) along the coastline. Drive through the forest and take notice of unusual twisted tree trunks before arriving at the beach and taking in views of the open ocean, where both sand and water stretch as far as the eye can see. Along the way, stop at one of the roadside restaurants and grab a bite while enjoying the peaceful surroundings.

  • I expected it, but it was a place with a feeling of advertising exaggeratedly. It was a pine forest with a lot of insects. There is a lot of pollen in the early spring by the condition of the body strangely in the hay fever.

  • Matsubara is located along Karatsu Bay in Saga Prefecture. Prefectural Route 347 runs through Matsubara. It is 4.5km long and looks like a green tunnel. It is refreshing to take it because of the forest made of pine, but you can see the whole view from Karatsu castle and Kagamiyama, but please go to prefectural road 347 by all means.
