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.

  • A mysterious island and stepped onto the amamikiyo. There is historical atmosphere is soothing and, we do not know. Island Air cannot be indescribably said. Don't be what this Island stone, sand, and one even brought in a handful. Is it a holy place. Since there mustn't be sure protect it. Return move aboard a boat from the Mainland because unless you look way back in time and you miss ❗ arrives on the island of haha and bicycle rental, because the turn is recommended. Walk around a long time.

  • Landed to begin with God in the Ryukyu Islands island famous as the power spot in kudaka Island recently famous, too many tourists. From Naha by bus 1 hour from the port of 安座間 in 15 minutes kudaka island will arrive on the island bike rental shop a couple of and Wyndham in rental power spot, beach, and Cape. They circumnavigate the island half-day as time permits, as a small island, day is bring in tourism. Many people and accommodation number of hotels on the island, consecutive nights and enjoy diving. No convenience store on the island, Island people opening shops and restaurants only. I did check with or without lodging meals and shopping / dining room opening hours and holidays, overnight is better.
