Unzen-Amakusa National Park: the Onsen Land

Unzen-Amakusa National Park, opened in 1934, is the first National Park in Japan. Its trail is most famous for the “Jigoku Meguri”, which means “to explore hell”. This is because Mount Unzen, which is in this National Park, is an active volcano that produces lots of sulphur from its vents, and this scene reminds people of hell. There is an observatory located along the trail which will take about 20 to 30 minutes to complete. Unzen-Amakusa National Park is about 1 hour 20 minutes from Nagasaki station by car. There are also many onsens (hot springs) around the area.
