  • Us across the bridge Irabu into Irabu Island, further shimojishima Island beaches and streets were driving around the outside of the airport stop by the pond, located north from the center of the island. At the Northwest of the airport, parked his car on the roadside. It is from the color of the sea was amazing too. Per, in some parts of the road and parked the car just like us, everyone wanted to take pictures. A no name Beach sea clean enough to park the car through here, but you have to do the same. With bright emerald blue, I say. Inspiring Ocean color.

  •  Shimojishima airport is not understood please by touch-and-go training just around the corner or even "Stratos 4" stage is seen in the anime long ago. I think we can look towards the sea for navigation lights are lined up along a road to the runway side and just around the corner, and the sea.
