The rocks of Aoshima Island, near the village of the same name, are a very special jewel. On the island there are Shinto shrines and a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean is incomparably beautiful. By the flora and fauna, the island offers a tropical-sounding flair. You feel like in another world and forget the world around them. This island... More

If the tide is is, like it was when I was there, you can hardly see the features. I was there on a Cruise ship excursion. They bragged about it, but did not mention that the photos were taken at low tide

The Devil's washboard rock formations are fairly common all along the Aoshima-Nichinan coast. You can see more of them if you drive along the coastline in a car. If you are in Aoshima they are all over and you can't miss them, but I wouldn't make a trip out just to see them. Don't worry they are not hard to... More

The Devil’s Washboard is most easily seen around Aoshima Island. As you approach the island on the causeway, the washboard is clearly visible if the tide be low. Low tide at mid-afternoon at Aoshima made for good photography of the Devil’s Washboard in early December. There were many families - and especially young children - digging in the sand around...

This is a wonderful display of how nature shapes and prepares itself for us to witness, I rank this rock formation as interesting as Genbudo near Amano Hashidate. I believe that you could spend a good couple of hours enjoying the Onino Senkatuita, the Aoshima Shrine and Aoshima Island.

Aoshima was a small island with 1.5 km in circumference planted with subtropical trees. The coastal line was surrounded by layers and layers of flat rock embedded gracefully in patterns. There were also rocks with circular holes which were unique there. You could feel mother Earth left its foot prints there when you stood at far end of the shore,... More
