Due to its natural harbour situated on the east coast of the island of Kiushu, Aburatsu is a strategic gateway  for cruises that run from the south of Japan with the Asian capitals.

Aburatsu, half of our cruise in southern Japan, is the gateway port to the picturesque Miyazaki Prefecture, famous for its beaches and coastal roads. Its mild climate and average temperatures among the highest in Japan, this is a popular tourist attraction. The sea waves are an irresistible attraction for lovers of surfing and the outdoors.
In addition to the zoo, which is home to the largest number of pink flamingos in captivity, it is a journey through the ruins of Obi Castle, with dwellings of the ancient samurai and the shore excursion to the island of Aoshima, a national natural monument, connected to the land by a bridge.
Not to be missed:

  • • Peace Tower and Heiwadai Park

  • The island of Aoshima, magnificent tropical gardens with tropical and subtropical plants.
