Toriike Pond, Miyakojima

(3.5/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Witness the mystical aspect of Toriike Pond, a pool seemingly isolated by jagged rocky outcrops. In fact, subterranean passages connect it to the ocean--but its mythic appearance has inspired many stories, including tales of a mermaid. Wear some sturdy boots for a walk along the surrounding trails, and consider bringing along a picnic to enjoy on the benches overlooking the blue pool. Put Toriike Pond and other Miyakojima attractions into our Miyakojima tour planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Road and parking facilities are well maintained. The tourist bus also visits often. Walking from the parking lot there is atmosphere. In only a few minutes reached the pond. Dark blue is bright. Photo spot has become. Things to see on the way tree road continues from the pond. Walkway is closed to traffic in the middle.

  • And a sad little Mermaid legend Street pond. Face to face is the same size as the two, it is strange. Divides the neighbour Island Mermaid fisherman caught a mermaid once, eat half, caused a tsunami that Mermaid mother half child Mermaid over the airwaves, or back. In place was the House of fishermen after the tsunami and its neighbour are pond, legend. Was clean, light and very blue. Have connected to ocean pond they say have in diving, so I'm a very beautiful. I want to go to dive into now?!
