Great for a short visit

A beautiful view with plenty of nice places to eat and free parking. Well worth stopping off at if you are driving and in the area.

The water front geology looks like the olden days wooden washing board. Take pictures but also check out the nearby shop selling local produce.

Visited Oni no Sentakuita -Ogre's Washboard in mid-summer.There were many parking areas near the site . We were able to park at the nearest place but we still had to walk a few meters up to the torii gate-the main site. The weather was perfect for taking pictures. It was actually very hot but I brought with me a summer... More

I was here on a Cruise from Vancouver to Shangai. We were taking to a viewpoint across the road from a travel stop. Unfortuately, there was a high tide and the view of the features was not available.

Around the Aoshima Island, there is a spectacular natural landscape called "Onino Sentakuita", literally means "monster's wash board". The rocks, eroded by water, are aligned parallel like a work of art. You can even walk on the rocks.

This natural phenomenon is found on the coastline of Miyazaki as well as around the island of Aoshima. You will get to see it if you visit the island of Aoshima. The place does NOT have an entry fee. Spend an hour in this area in a relaxing manner. Avoid it if it rains very hard though.

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

On a clear day with blue sky, this is an interesting place to see nature. You can eat at one of the restaurants here. Given that this part of Kyushu doesn't have much to offer, this place is a rare find.

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
