(3.3/5 based on 1,100+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: sightseeing, theme parks, zoos & aquariums
The city of Shima has long been associated with pearl farming and cultivation, though holidaymakers have found plenty of other reasons to visit this coastal area in recent years. A national park covers the peninsula on which Shima sits, with the varied coastline offering beaches, dramatic cliffs, and bays with many forested islands where pearl farming still takes place. Shima holidays also offer the chance to see some of the most sacred Shinto shrines in the country, located on the peninsula. Find what you're looking for from your Shima holiday, by planning the whole thing with us using our handy Japan trip itinerary builder.

Where to stay

Only recently merged into one city, Shima has many different centers, each with its set of accommodations. The main ones of interest for tourists lie close to the train stations, with conveniently placed hotels and guesthouses, and also along the coast. Accommodations dot the rugged coastlines of Ago and Matoya bays, where some particularly exclusive options enjoy extensive coastal views, onsite spas, and restaurants. Standing next to them, in only slightly less privileged positions, you'll find a number of guesthouses and simple hotels.
