Aoshima Island, Miyazaki

(4.2/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
Meet the friendly feline inhabitants of Aoshima Island, an island known for its large population of cats. In fact, cats outnumber humans by a ratio of around 6:1 on the island, a fact that becomes immediately clear when arriving on the twice-daily ferry into the harbor. The island, 30 minutes by boat from Ehime prefecture, was home to around 900 people in 1945. Cats were brought to the island to help the fishermen catch mice that were getting onto their boats, and the population has grown steadily ever since. A visit to Aoshima Island represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Miyazaki trip itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

  • 鬼之洗衫岩好值得到訪,相當奇特,氣勢磅礴,風景優美,由宮崎出發,乘坐火車來回,雖然由青島火車站仍要步行約十分鐘前往,但交通時間仍算不長,同時亦可考慮住宿在青島,好有身處熱帶、歐美之感覺。高度推薦的一個地點及景點。  more »
  • Put the car in the souvenir shop Street, walking, cross the island. Along the way, stays in the eye protruding Beach and deformed rock scar indescribably strange rocks.

  • 購買了遊客巴士一日卷,好像只需一千日元,就可以來到青島和幾個宮崎的景點,大家記得留意巴士班次,因為也差不多一小時一班,如果有買jr pass的,也可以選擇乘坐火車。鬼之洗濯板(洗衫板)是一個自然現象, 因為長期受到海浪的衝擊,露出海面的巖石就被侵蝕得像洗衫板一樣。大家要注意潮漲潮退時間啊,把握機會觀看和拍照!  more »
