Landmark Tourist Spot
Explore the Japanese countryside and experience rural life as you travel down Sugar Road. Located on the eastern side of the island, the road got its name for sugar plantations, which can be found either side of the attraction and are considered one of the most important parts of the island's economy. This piece of tarmac remains one of the island's main attractions and often features in popular Japanese TV drama Churusan, from which it gained its popularity. Keep an eye out for local farm animals hanging around as you travel along the road.

  • 自転車で走ることは楽しいけど、電動自転車にしたほうが良かったと思います。めちゃめちゃ暑かった! Good exercise as it is hilly. Opt for the electric bicycle unless you are quite fit  more »
  • It is not worth it visiting the island to see this road. It is a long road with sugarcane plantations on both sides but it is possible to see roads like this in the other islands.  more »
  • Runs next to the sugar cane field on a rental bike, extended straight while feeling the wind and heat was feeling forgotten. Bicycle, bike is recommended. I would ride a license if you won't usually catch, but no signal, with a little practice.
