All kids in Japan know about the fairy tale of Momotaro. If you don't then this is a good place to go and check out. I won't tell you too much about the fairy tale itself, as it might be fun to just go and...More

Be sure to visit Onigashima Cave. This cave is the home of an ogre. Although a bit touristy, there is no denying the majesty of the cave itself. The boat ride to the island is lovely. There is even a moai statue near the dock.

I went here with my friends on an off-season trip, meaning that all the art exhibitions were closed. That did not stop us enjoying this lovely place in the slightest! We rented bicycles (go electric), and toured around the relatively small island with ease, stopping...More

We were there for the Setouchi Triannale and I found the island is very charming, it is very nice for a half day excursion, combined with Ogijima for example.

I came to this island for the Setouchi Triennale 2016. I chose to include this island in my tour because of the Momotaro folktale, which as a kid, I have heard for a lot of times. The island itself is small, and is mostly walkable....More

We visited as part of the Setouchi Triennial Festival. However, I have no idea if the exhibits are still maintained after the festival is over. The island itself is quaint and not heavily developed. The exhibits ranged from amazing (the mirrors) to the cheesy (the...More

This is the third island of Seto inland sea we visited on this trip. Since it is very close to Takamatsu, only about 25 mins by ferry, although it was not on our plan to visit. Upon we arrived and found out the bus service...More

Most people will head up to the cave quickly come down and take a ferry to Ogijima so they can do both island in a day before returning to Takamatsu. You can do that too. Or if you want to slow down the pace and...More

We loved all the art works here when we visited as part of the Setouchi festival in late July. Had a relaxing ferry trip over from Takamatsu and a lovely walk around. If we had known we would have brought swimming clothes as there were...More

Did not get a lot of information before going there. One should prepare to go swimming if you get onto the island. It looks like Okinawa. We did not have swimwear and just had a very nice lunch at Beach Cafe.
