Nagasaki’s festival of color and light for the Chinese New Year.  The Chinatown, Hamanomachi, and Spectacles Bridge areas go all out with this celebration of Nagasaki’s Chinese heritage. Dates: Feb. 10 - 24 Times: 14:00 - 20:30

This ghost-town island was once a major coal mining community with a peak population density of over 84,000 people per square kilometer (over 10 times that of Tokyo today).  It’s worth the short ferry ride - when the weather’s good.
Actually, there are 208 of them, but they’re so beautiful nobody bothers to count!  25km north of Sasebo Port, this island group is the largest collection of islands in Japan.  There are boat tours around the islands, but you can also just enjoy them from a park on top of a hill above them.
Hungry for a taste of  home?  Need a beer  after a hard day of  traveling?  Come join  the gang at Rock &  Roll BRATS for a brat  and a beer and some  good old rock and roll  music.  Oh, and we speak English - so just  relax and reflect on the day!  Dates: all year Times: 10 - 8  (10 - 9, Fri/Sat)
