Getting There & Away

Hirado is closer to Saga-ken than to Nagasaki city, joined to Kyūshū by a mini Golden Gate–lookalike bridge from Hirado-guchi. The closest train station, Tabira-Hirado-guchi on the private Matsuura-tetsudō line (to Imari ¥1230, 65 minutes; to Sasebo ¥1340, 80 minutes), is Japan's westernmost, and local buses cross the bridge to the island (¥260, 10 minutes). From Nagasaki, journey to Sasebo by JR/express bus (¥1600/1450, both 1½ hours) and continue to Hirado by bus (¥1500, 1½ hours).
