Welcome to Amakusa!  天草へようこそ!
On this website Amakusa ALTs will find important information about daily life in Amakusa, including advice about shopping, medical care, and transportation outside of Amakusa.  Everyone can enjoy the information here about restaurants, festivals, and outdoor recreation opportunities you can find here on our lovely islands! Let's enjoying Amakusa!  

Much of the information here has been passed down for many years from ALT to ALT, so some of it has become outdated.  We hope to make this site accessible for editing to all Amakusa ALTs so that everyone can add their own bits of information and advice. Especially with the tax hike in April 2014, things might be a bit different. We'll do our best to keep it updated but don't use this as your only resource.
