Nichinan city in Miyazaki is blessed with natural beauty of sea and landscape around it. In this 4 hour trip, you'll enjoy seeing beautiful islands scattered along Nichinan sea coast and sea creatures under water riding a glass boat ( a boat with glass window at the bottom and the side) and enjoy visiting "Roadside station Nango" which won the reputation of the most popular station in Japan.

What to Expect

You'll have a chance to see such a magnificent and beautiful scenery along the Nichinan sea coastal line and experience watching sea creatures under water, riding in a ship going through islands for 45 minutes. You also have a chance to visit the most popular Roadside station in Japan for its beauty landscape and try fabulous soft mango icecream if you'd like to.
