Nichinan

(3.3/5 based on 850+ reviews for top 20 attractions)
Things to do: sightseeing, historic sites, museums
Tourism in Nichinan, a town on Japan's southernmost island of Kyushu, flourishes thanks to the scenic Nichinan-Kaigan coastline, a stretch of secluded coves, islands, and tranquil beaches. A trip to Nichinan allows you to explore the famed strip, as well as visiting several popular attractions. A cliffside cave shrine, a historic castle, and a number of museums stand out as some of the best things to do in Nichinan. If you're staying in Nichinan, it's best to use you own vehicle to explore the isolated beaches, parks, and sights that dot the rough landscape of the cliff-lined seaboard.
