Do[edit]

Eat[edit]

Sleep[edit]

  • [formerly dead link] International Village Youth House. Sasebo City, Nagasaki (90-minute train ride on the Seaside Liner from Nagasaki Station). A very large hostel that looks a bit like an American college dorm complex with a gym, a cafeteria, and a couple of fields. Lots of rooms, all private (1-4 people per room), from ¥2625 per person per night. It's a good base for exploring the Nagasaki-Sasebo-Hus Ten Bosch area. Right next to Huis Ten Bosch.
