Kudakajima Island, Nanjo

(4.6/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Sometimes referred to as “"the island of the God,"” folklore says that the god Amamikiyo descended on the heavenly Kudakajima Island and introduced multi-grains essential for life. Arriving at the ferry port, you can peruse some gift shops and grab a bite to eat, including the opportunity to sample a local delicacy, the deadly seasnake (hand-captured by the islanders). Consider hiring a bike at the port, a good way to get around the island, but be aware that some areas are sacred and you won't be able to set foot there. Take a map from the ferry to identify the forbidden areas. Put Kudakajima Island at the forefront of your travel plans using our Nanjo vacation generator.

  • I went to weekends in mid January. Over new year's holiday, despite relatively last minute, Skymark Airlines is cheap, so haste partnership plan, bullet 1 night 2 days of planning. Naha arrived around noon, and car hire to the South. Day 1-night Nanjo city in the evening. The next morning, the boat, crossed the kudaka island. After arriving in kudaka Island, island in bicycle is all around. Flat island, so the best bike. Slightly windy, chilly, the weather was good and comfortable. And then detour to some sacred sites and beautiful beaches along the way, while the approximately to the 1周 island in two hours. Have lunch at a restaurant near the port, returned to the island in the afternoon. Made visits of kudaka Island, stayed for about three hours, was satisfied. Okinawa is the image of the summer, but the timing may have been vacant so, in that sense, on the island of quiet with God, whose season.

  • It was on the island of the gods? It is not connected by the bridge must go by boat, so Okinawa island. Its worth going all the way says Island I think. I would like in the seifa-Utaki and set. The island is very relaxing (^ o ^) /

  • Visit by ferry from the port of 安座間. On the island was around on bicycles. Is pretty people many aboard the ferry were the island from becoming unstuck from a small island, but too much people didn't. Entered into the sea just a little bit at the end, but transparency, a lot of small fish was swimming. Hopefully next time I want to stay.
