Hirado Island is what I class as traditional Japan. Everything seems to be at a slower pace (which is a good thing) Hirado Castle is a prominent landmark in the area. We got some lovely photographs.... more »
A fantastic must see spot of Nagasaki Prefecture. Gorgeous view of the ocean and surrounding areas.
Enjoyed the illumination at the castle. Really a beautiful place during the day and the night :)
