Many things to do and a couple of cafes to go to. There is an airport there but you cannot go in but you can drive along the runway on the outside for a bit.

Cross the Irabu bridge. Shimoji-jima island looks to be almost the western part of Irabu island. There is the large Shimojijima airport - but I didn't see any planes there as well as the two ponds next to each other at Tooriike. Linked to each other under the sea. Open for exploration by advanced divers.

Water around the airport are amazing! Crystal clear water with occasional reefs popping out of the water, makes this an rare shore-escape. Apparently only tourists swims and stops here, as locals do not bother to swim these shores.
