Explore Japan's first national park

The eight mountains Fugendake, Kunimidake Myoken-dake, Kinugasa-dake, Takaiwa-dake, Nodake, Yadake and Kusenbe-dake, are collectively called Mount Unzen. Unzen was the first designated national park in Japan. Carefully protected since ancient times, the nature of Unzen is beautiful, with many wild birds and highland plants.

How to Get There

Mt. Unzen is accessible by bus.

The easiest way to get to Mt. Unzen from Nagasaki is by bus. Catch the bus from Nagasaki bus terminal bound for Unzen, which will take you around an hour and 40 minutes. From there, head to the Shimatetsu Bus Office Unzen for information.

A place of natural beauty and breathtaking views

Mt. Unzen is an area of great natural beauty. With its azaleas in the spring and fiery autumn leaves, Mt. Unzen earns a place among Nagasaki's most beautiful natural environments.

Additionally, a ropeway was built from Nita Pass to Myokendake to allow visitors to truly enjoy the views the mountain has to offer.
