For sightseeing, the beautiful sea enclosed by the Amakusa Islands is attractive. The Five Bridges of Amakusa connect the Amakusa Islands with the Kyushu mainland and a popular activity is riding the Amakusa Sightseeing Boat “Pearl Line” sightseeing boat around the bridges.
Additionally, in 1560, Christianity was brought to Amakusa by the Portuguese Luis de Almeida. Because of this, there are many places related to Christian culture that have been preserved by Amakusa Christians. You can experience this history at Amakusa Christian Museum and Sakitsu Church.
