  • It was running on its own island for 42 km has been 1周, but anyway there shrine Island NAA impression. After-all friendly people of the island. Meguremasu tourist destinations of the island while driving slowly around the island if you compete in Kikai Island Marathon, personally serving as a sightseeing Marathon tournament quite recommended. Also because the next day for runners have extra cheap travel tours click here check it out! Also having to compete in the marathon village people as a chipmunk walking guide 500 yen tourist also will. 5-course. Advance reservation is required on the phone. Please listen to the tourist Bussan Association.

  • In December, I visited with caution. Here in the atmosphere is really nice, was visiting the island too helpful as time passes slowly. Real location at sea, high mountains because it is not spectacular, is also good warm island. Please visit.

  • I went with my family. Island is about 40 kilometers 1 helpful relaxed at car rental. Beaches in gentle waves bring a child, can have fun. You can play fun at myself because I have some. The sea is beautiful anyway. From in the morning do not play in local people in the no lol locals not hot day so burning from 3 pm later from 17:00 go to the beach is like. So a lot of Rock Island made of coral reefs, beach shoes is required. Please visit the tourist elements that might be less, but in the summer at sea a beautiful laid-back. The surprised. Gave barefoot Beach Park except where suitable bathing place than even diving off the beaten path in a beautiful place, but because of the current marine debris (glass fragments) from the Asian region, such as easy-to-nightmare because. Underground dam or Japan, seen only here do you want to spend time and can see no precious butterfly, lovers and families with children and try to visit once I think.
