Tsushima Island from Fukuoka

Tour Map Fukuoka and Tsushima 3 days: The unspoiled border island Tsushima (Self-drive in the Island)

Price: from £455

Tsushima Island is located just 50 km in distance from the Korean peninsula and 132 km away from the coast of Fukuoka city, although it belongs to Nagasaki prefecture.
Tsushima used to be one country until 7th century and even after that period, it was at the front line of both conciliation and conflict with Korean as one of the border islands of Japan.
Now it is peaceful island and a paradise for nature lovers, because 89% of the long-thin shaped land (82 km from north to south) is covered by mountains and forests and surrounded by crystal clear sea.
