It is a beautiful small island in Tomonoura. If you come to Fukuyama city, it is highly recommended to extend your trip to come here (30min by bus from Fukuyama station). From the ferry station, it takes only 5 min to come to this island....More

Great for exploring and the boat ride was fun. Has a few walking tracks to choose from. We picked a short walk to look at the "5-coloured rocks", it was very pleasant and calming for minds. We noticed some tourists booked to spend a night...More

After a nice walk through Tomonomura, we decided to take the ferry to Sensui Island and we were not disappointed. The island has several beaches (some of which require hiking and some seem only accessible by boat), nice hiking paths and some shops where you...More

It's less than 10' from Tomo-no ura by ferry. There are several beaches and easy hikes (20', 30' and 60' round-trip). Great views and sunsets from the outlooks, a campsite with fixed tents (tatami + fridge (!)) and two ryokans.
