Tsushima (対馬) is in Nagasaki (prefecture).


Tsushima is an island off Kyushu in the middle of the Korean Strait between Japan and South Korea. Although a popular destination for Korean day trippers, it is still relatively unknown to western travelers. There are two main towns on the island: 1 Hitakatsu in the north and 2 Izuhara in the south.
