Unzen

3.1
Set against a formidable volcano, the city of Unzen pulsates with scenic beauty. Created in 2005 from the amalgamation of seven of the district's smaller rural towns, the city sits in Japan's first national park, thriving with diverse nature fueled by the power of the ever-present volcano. Indulge in a tour of the region's rich onsen hot springs, followed by some sightseeing on Unzen's picturesque ropeway. A trip to the city's steaming sulphuric trails in the center of town are a must for every Unzen itinerary--but do brace yourself for the smell of sulphur. With over 30 hot springs to choose from divided across three districts, you should try to visit at least one from each, ranging from traditional to contemporary and even themed. Unzen is in Nagasaki Prefecture. Put Unzen at the heart of your travel plans by using our Japan day trip app.
