Unzen is a gentle Onsen resort situated in the Unzen National Park. The Resort area was

Located in the centre of Shimabara peninsula, at the southwest part of Mount Unzen

Where to explore  


Nita Pass

One of the best scenic spot in Unzen. At any time of the year the natural scenery of Nita Pass

from the springs, and with white smoke rising from the ground over a wide area. This is a striking
