Located about 1 hour by train from Kumamoto City,
the Amakusa area is composed of several hundred islands of varying sizes.
This area is becoming very popular for "Dolphin Watching" where you can see some of the 200 wild dolphins living here.
Throughout the year there is a 90% chance that you will see a wild dolphin so if you are near the ocean be sure to visit.
People who visit here are always emotionally moved and healed by the natural environment of Amakusa, which is so beautiful that dolphins can live in it.
