We walking from Aoshima beach to Island. You can see a lot of natural rock everywhere. The rock is interesting & particular. There’s no car can enter to this island. You must park your car in the parking area before go.

The volcanic rock formations are unusual, in a similar vein to the Giants Causeway in Antrim in Ireland. The shrine on the island nothing special. However the wooden train that leaves from Miyazaki is worth booking and taking.

It was a cold but wonderfully sunny Christmas Day when we visited which made it just perfect. We loved the ambience in the temple and really liked wandering across the fascinating rock formations, the devil's washboard. We took countless photos of the red torii gate...More

we walked here to take a look at the shrine on the island but found that the real draw was actually the "devil's washboard" surrounding the island! we woke up really early to catch the sunrise and it was a great and interesting view.

A nice walk on a clear day across the bridge to the island. Have a close-up look at what the locals call "The Devil's Washboard" along the way. The island is a quiet stroll through nature unless you are part of a large tour group.

The drive along the Nicheman coast afforded amazing views of the Pacific Ocean before we reached Aoshima. The walk from here across the bridge to the Island was relaxed and enjoyable. The view of the ground level rock formations formed by nature on either side...More

此処は日南海岸国定公園内で、かつ神社庁の管轄内なので決められた範囲以外は立ち入り禁止の様です。その為キャンプ等は禁止られていますし、火を焚くことも当然出来ません。残念でしょうが、理解しましょうね。
