Welcome to Unzen
In Unzen-Amakusa National Park, Japan's first national park, Unzen (雲仙) is off the beaten path but spectacularly worth a visit. It boasts dozens of onsen and woodsy trekking through volcanic landscapes. Unzen village is easily explored in an afternoon, and once the day trippers clear out you can enjoy a peaceful night's stay in some great hot-spring accommodation. The village also has the honour of being perhaps the last place in all of Japan without a convenience store.
