Go to "GOTO"
July 1 to December 31, 2020
The Goto Islands are located in Nagasaki Prefecture off the coast of the capital city of Nagasaki. The islands are known for their importance as a foothold for Christianity in Japan during the 16th century. Many of the Catholic churches and villages on the Goto Islands are now a UNESCO World Heritage Site known as the Hidden Christian Sites in the Nagasaki Region.
One notable site is Kashiragashima church on Kamigoto Island. This church was an important sanctuary for Christian migrants, and its legacy has made Kamigoto known as "the island of prayer." Visitors can travel to the historical Goto Islands on the archipelago's local steamship The BIG EARTH.
Overseas visitors can enjoy:
A special 2020-only discount on rides from Nagasaki Port to Tainoura Port for 2020 yen.
A free serving of Goto Tenobe ("hand-stretched") udon for those with birthdays with "2" or "0" in the date.
