What are the Nagasaki Cycle Routes?
Nagasaki Prefecture, located on the western tip of Kyushu, is surround by the sea and brimming with magnificent nature. It also boasts the second longest coastline in all of Japan. It is a fabulous location where many types of cycling can be enjoyed from long rides into the crisp sea breeze, to touring trips which visit various sight-seeing spots, to strolling into city centers where encounters with local people await.
