What is a Ryokan? Ryokans are the best way to experience Japanese culture and enjoy the true comforts of Japanese hospitality and service.

The Shimabara Peninsula, a volcanic region in Kyushu (Nagasaki Prefecture), is where the 17th century Shimabara Rebellion occurred. This revolt worried the ruling government because it was led by Japanese Christians, a minority that was soon weakened and driven underground. Mount Unzen (Unzendake) is a series of overlapping, active volcanoes on the Shimabara Peninsula, and it is home to beautiful natural scenery as well as a number of hot spring resorts.
