Uku Island

A relaxed way

Uku Island is in the northernmost of the Goto Islands in Nagasaki Prefecture, Whichthe circumference is 38 km. Endless beautiful beach, the lighthouse on which the horizon can be seen and the warmth of the islanders, all these are so attractive. Everything is convenient in a big city. It is one of the values to live in a big city. Yet, seeing the horizon and playing with a cow is also valuable. To introduce such islands is one of what we plan to do. As it is a remote island, it is not convenient in case of illness. It is hoped that every tourist has a tour without being beyond his own physical condition.

Access and Getting Around

There are no public transportations, it is not bad to use a car or a rental bicycle to go round as it is small. Rental electric bicycles are available. At least one-night stay must be considered because it is a remote island.
