(4.5/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Rent a bicycle to explore Shimoji-jima Island, connected to the much bigger Irabu Island by a complex bridge system with a total length of 3,540 m (11,614 ft). With turquoise and azure shades of water, the island stands out as a famous diving and snorkeling spot. Part of Irabu National Park, its 7,000 inhabitants cultivate sugar cane and fish. You can swim, cycle, stroll, or fish, enjoying pristine nature and shades of blue. Keep an eye out for skipjack tuna fish, which make frequent visits to these waters. For airplane spotting, visit the island's international airport.

  • Recently seems to be flying so much training machines. Featured point of the island is "Street pond" on the coast facing the sea on the Western side of the island there are two ponds. And through sea and ocean-side pond, connected in a cave.

  • Across a small bridge from Irabu bridge down to the beach of the Dadukou, cross the Bandai. Does the island feels quite so Irabu island and adjacent. In Island Beach, rock band, the street is filled with attractions and beach ponds and Centrair, Sawada.
