Let's drive! Pick up your rent a car at Nippon Rent a car Office near Hakata station at 9AM and visit Tsunoshima.
Tsunoshima Bridge is a colossal 1,780m bridge which has panoramic views and makes for amazing photo spots, as well as being a lovely coastal drive.
After that, head to the Nagato area in Yamaguchi.
A popular spot here is the Motonosumi Inari Shrine which is famous for its seaside shrine with a tunnel of 123 'torii' gates, these bright red gates are an iconic feature of Japan, however few are in a location where they can be witnessed alongside the beautiful contrasting colours of the clear blue ocean.
For even more fantastic views, check out Senjojiki: a grassy plain high above sea level that overlooks the Sea of Japan.
