Island Hopping the Nagasaki Islands (Japan)
A while ago I flew from Fukue, an airport serving the Goto Islands in Nagasaki to Fukuoka (another prefecture). From there flew to Tsushima, another island of Nagasaki. Both Goto and Tsushima are islands of Nagasaki prefecture. Here is a bit about them:
Goto Islands (五島列島)
Goto is made up of 5 main islands (Nakadori Island “中通島”、Wakamatsu Island “若松島”, Narushima “奈留島”, Hisaka Island “久賀島”, and Fukue Island “福江島” also the island I took off from) but has over 140 different islands, stretching up to 80 km. The islands have a population of 70,000 residents. Some of the nature in Goto is classified as one of the Saikai National Park. The island’s main industry is fishing, with also being a tourist destinations offering rich history and natural beauties.
Tsushima is an island that’s home to about 30,000 inhabitants. The island was also a gateway for Eurasian culture trade. Since the island is only about 50 km from Korea, the island gets many tourists from Korea As well as having a rich history between each other. Tsushima has a rich culture dating back to the Neolithic Period.
