Saikai Pearl Sea Resort4.5
Saikai Pearl Sea Resort is the waterfront entrance to the Kujuku-shima ('ninety-nine islands'), part of Saikai National Park in the sea. Sightseeing boats, such as the Pearl Queen and the Kaio, depart from this complex and make a 1-hour loop through numerous islands. The view of a distant bridges and pearl farms is beautiful. For children, there are attractions like treasure hunting and tour to the captain's cabin.
The resort also has a base for yacht sailing and kayaking to experience the nearby islands, an aquarium called Umi-kirara, and an array of restaurants and souvenir shops. This is a great place for a family to spend time with ocean views.

Absolutely gorgeous cruise especially in a sunny day. The cruise itself takes about an hour and you will enjoy the scenery of countless islands nearby.

We had a great time! The ride was smooth even on a windy day. Expert navigation. It is a Sasebo MUST! Great look into the 99 Islands!

Beautiful sites, perfect length of ride. We opted for the private room on the Queen Pearl and it was nice to have a place to keep our things and take our 2 year old.

I loved the boat tour! There's the regular boat tour and then one especially for kids that's pirate themed. You don't really need to understand Japanese to appreciate the beauty and fun experience. There's a couple places to shop and eat here too. Personally, I recommend Pinnochio's as it is amazing Italian food more than worth the price. It's kid friendly too even if it comes off as more of a date spot. Kids love the big, traditional brick oven that takes up two stories and you can look out and see the ship tours passing. There's also outdoor seating too so you can enjoy those pretty summer days.
Even though this is meant for tourists, it's more than worth the visit. My mom and I used to go here all the time just to stroll the boardwalk and have lunch together. I really cannot recommend this place enough.

How many islands, do you think, there are in the Kujuku-shima(ninety-nine islands)? There is an aquarium called Umi Kilala, umi means the sea and kilala is an onomatopoeia, expressing sparkling. You can enjoy a whole day there.
