  • Worth a visit. Be prepared to walk a lot if visiting all the temples. Nice examples of old Japanese architecture.
  • I loved this place! I found many old and interesting buildings to take great pictures.
  • Quaint fishing town with a charming old downtown area. Best feature are the friendly and somewhat quirky local shop owners. Worth visiting for a day trip if you ever find yourself in the vicinity.
  • The kids always have fun hunting for things in the beach over on Sensuijima.
  • Beautiful little town with lots of quirky locals.
