The accommodation itself was sparse in a good way, with basic rooms containing clean tatami, futon and bedclothes for each of us, a sink, and a view that opened directly to a wide ocean view. The toilets were separate and clean, and the bathing room was old, but functional.
I won't say it was perfect, but for budget accommodation with an amazing view and a short bus ride to the center of Nagasaki city, you could do a lot worse.
My favorite time of day was the early morning. I'd wake up and grab a coffee from the vending machine, and sit to watch the amazing sunrises.
Then I'd head out for a walk. Sometimes along the pier to see the cats and fishing eagles, or sometimes up the hill to the Buddhist shrine.
There were many shrines and temples in this little town, and if you ever stay there, I highly suggest taking a day to visit them all.
It turns out we had underestimated just how amazing the little town of Mogi was. It was sleepy and small, with a tiny population, but it also had some beautiful shrines and a temple too. There was a great little convenience store that, while you had to plan it out beforehand, was still a walkable distance away.
Even though it is technically a fishing village, the water was clean and clear, with very little rubbish and no disgusting smell at all. I had a swim in the ocean just in front of our lodgings, and while the water was cold with a sharp, stony floor, it was pleasant nonetheless.
As you can imagine there was an abundance of sea life, and the owners of Burabura House spent most days with a fishing line dangling into the water.
