  • Floating on the sea, the island name has changed and the radish won't read. I'm also the atmosphere of the island in a very gentle relaxing mood is situated, this island is a Island born by volcanic activity. Its vestiges are obsolete as a lava tube cave (one is off-limits, another Nite prior permission required is). It is also a drive course Enoshima bridge there is a beautiful garden of yushi Park, made famous by solid stepping Hill, a small but quite many attractions and expansive sea views. It is very recommended if out of Matsue in sakaiminato and Yonago.
