Welcome to the Kunisaki Peninsula!

We here at the Kunisaki Tourism Association understand the complexities that come along with traveling to the rural countryside in Japan. Our goal is to provide a style of rural sightseeing that allows visitors to conveniently enjoy the countryside of Japan and provide opportunities to build personal experiences and lasting memories with the residents of Kunisaki. We want to cater to you in a way that will both exceed your expectations and leave you with a once in a lifetime experience!

The Kunisaki Peninsula is a place like no other place in Japan. The 1,300 years of existing relics and statues found among the mountain temples and trails can leave visitors with an array of mixed impressions that vary as much as the thousands of years that have passed on this undiscovered land, known as the Kunisaki Peninsula. Rich in it’s own history, yet nothing extraordinary to the locals, the spirit of this place is both present and subtle. Life here is laid back and you’ll find it easy to relax and enjoy your surroundings. With direct flights to and from Tokyo all day, getting here is not a ch
allenge, leaving is!

Since ancient times Kunisaki has been a training place for those seeking spiritual enlightenment through rigorous mountain rituals. Kunisaki has a rich culture combining Buddhism, Shintoism, and mountain worship, leaving the peninsula full of relics and artifacts that have been left standing for over a thousand years. Come explore the treasures of Kunisaki!
