i＋Land Nagasaki is a new entertainment resort that will host its grand opening on July 18.
A former leisure facility, the establishment underwent a huge renewal and changed its name to i＋Land Nagasaki on April 1, 2018. The new resort will host a huge line-up of activities including Island Lumina, which hails as Japan’s first interactive and immersive night walk, as well as yoga, SUP yoga, sea kayaking, and more. Select parts of the resort’s accommodation and restaurants have been revamped too.
Iojima is an easy location to being just 30 minutes by car from the city of Nagasaki (or 20 minutes from Nagasaki Port via boat).
i＋Land Nagasaki covers a wide area and faces the sea. It’s split into four areas: the Port Area, Garden Area, Shimakaze Area and Lumina Area.
In the run up to the grand opening, the new seaside BBQ facility will open in the garden area on July 1 smack bang in the middle of the island and facing the sea. Food and amenities will already be prepared for guests so you can turn up empty-handed. There’s even outdoor tents meaning you can enjoy yourself even if it rains.
As well as each area having their own accommodation facilities, there’s also a restaurant, hot springs, a kid’s play area and more, all of which can be used by non-guests of the resort too. An array of activities are also scheduled to take place around the resort.
The huge recommendation at i＋Land Nagasaki is Island Lumina which opened on April as Japan’s first ever experienced-based multimedia night walk. You’ll be transported into a mystical and romantic world that will pleasure all five of your senses.
Island Lumina was created by Moment Factory, a world-leading digital art group from Canada. It uses cutting-edge technology that combines light and music in a twilight forest environment. Those who enter the forest will be absorbed into an immersive story of a girl looking for a magical jewel.
You can take part in a bicycle excursion tour of Iojima―which stretches across 2.26km² of the island―that’ll around 1 hour. There’s also optional tours to go and see Hashima Island, now an abandoned island and World Heritage site, as well as Oura Church, another World Heritage Site, and more.
Take a strip to the new i＋Land Nagasaki this summer and immerse yourself in nature.
