Concept

ナナメ上↗︎上天草
NANAME-UE KAMIAMAKUSA is a tourism brand concept. It aims to ensure the penetration of the NANAME-UE(*) image of going greatly beyond and exceeding expectations.

The tourism contents which follow this concept greatly exceed (NANAME-UE) the expectations of visitors and never fail to fascinate them.
(*) Naname-ue is Japanese. It is a word that expresses a situation one step or greatly beyond expected/predicted results or a truly unexpected situation.
