Lose yourself at Nijino Matsubara, considered one of the three greatest pine areas in Japan, with over one million pine trees stretching for 5 km (3 mi) along the coastline. Drive through the forest and take notice of unusual twisted tree trunks before arriving at the beach and taking in views of the open ocean, where both sand and water stretch as far as the eye can see. Along the way, stop at one of the roadside restaurants and grab a bite while enjoying the peaceful surroundings. A visit to Nijino Matsubara represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Karatsu holiday planner to plot your vacation.
