9. Nagasaki

We didn't go the shortest way between Fukuoka and Nagasaki. Instead, we rode on different branch lines, JR as well as non-JR.

Matsuura Railway - a company with only one line (94 km).
Huis Ten Bosch is a theme park which recreates the Netherlands. There are express trains named "Huis Ten Bosch" from Hakata to the park's own station.
The Omura line north of Nagasaki runs along the coast. Beautiful scenary. The "Sea Side Liner" is the main service on the line.
Nagasaki - an interesting city. We stayed in the JR Hotel in the station, so the second picture is from our room!
Nagasaki city has a quite large tramway system.
