Kudakajima Island, Nanjo

(150+ reviews on the web)
Island
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.

  • Saved mileage deadline approached, so suddenly one night in Okinawa. Staff it was the return flight late flights, so no island? I think if you had searched kudaka island came out. Staying in a hotel near the international road, bus transit ferry, arrived in about two hours. It is inevitable because the have ferries-bus. But I'm going on the bus jolted and also some good. But many who travel alone. When you rent a bike "or rent how many times? "Asked is still much around that or to cancel in time, so I don't know what? Should the amount of the flat rate is? I thought. Pondered, to 2 hours, but if you don't swim well around that time was. It is a nice bike. Even the weather was good and the staff. However, was visited for the first time. 1 place I stay how long? Unable to think about rentals and ferry time time allocation, without worrying about the rice! ~ and at sea may seem insignificant moment in two hours. I can't, however, strong sunlight so long? Maybe may. I saw a lot of butterflies, known as the island of the gods. This is the place, little took time to go to.

  • Stay time is 45 minutes and it is very short, but could go up to Cape by bicycle! Walk more slowly next time! Cats are cute

  • "Cancer all over the station and Castle" from behind the island Interior. Can clearly see weather permitting in the beautiful Sea Island, but it was veiled in rainy. Also, "kudaka Island oratory" and "seifa-Utaki" in the views of the island from here too!
