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.

  • From Naha airport car rental shop in 15 minutes, I start at the 1. 安座間 port was reached in about 50 minutes. It was time for the 2 o'clock. Perhaps because of the outside seating on the second floor Wiggles gasoline smell better. Come concerned about seasickness is on the ground floor. Bought a bicycle rented boat tickets at the shelter got too roughly maps Smartphone and staring contest while circling the island. Was almost never up and down. Professing maintained, road or highway. I think because there is a map to the shelter map is easy to understand. (Only return when I noticed so) would like to more slowly next time because there were only two hours before the last flight.

  • The phrase God's Island, have visited interesting. Rode a bus from Naha, rocked by high speed boat arrived on the island in about an hour and a half. Few visitors on weekdays the season was and was very quiet. If 2-3 hours walk is the island's major tourist attractions in the village walk, 10 minutes can go anywhere compact as terrible. It is a quiet and peaceful island. Many sacred places and anecdotes used in ritual, it was a strange atmosphere.
