Sasebo

Theme Parks · Islands · Observation Decks
With its U.S. Navy base, Sasebo has certainly developed pockets with an international feel: in downtown, often known as Sailor Town, you'll happen upon a number of eateries serving American-style hamburgers. The additions to traditional Japanese food, American-style theme parks, and abundance of signs written in English, make this a rather comfortable and interesting place to stop off during wider regional explorations. The islands that lie out in the bay represent one of the main tourist attractions of Sasebo, with a number of boats making trips to the islands at all hours of the day. Take a peek at our world travel planner: Sasebo and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.

Where to stay in Sasebo

Standard hotels make up the bulk of accommodation options in Sasebo, with quite little to distinguish between them, other than the views from certain rooms overlooking the water. Take a look along Highway 35, the main thoroughfare running through town. Hotels stand in clusters next to both Sasebo and Naka-Sasebo railway stations. For a view of the islands in the bay, consider staying at a hotel farther back from the water on the hills that envelop the town center.
