  • I stopped by on a business trip to the Kitakyushu from Tokyo. You can circumnavigate the Musashi image somewhat in the island, 20 minutes goes into the story much of the story? Depart from Moji port bus, a humanitarian tunnel across, Yamaguchi Prefecture and karato port leave Moji via gift, excellent hiking trails.

  • From the port of Moji 10 minutes about the voyage of 800 yen. Note and missed the last bus home, "If you missed nothing in one night? "And also fear they will be 30 minutes if you do not need to worry about round-up and was around one large island. What island is this famous-and never once indulged to the deep emotion while briefly taking pictures, I'm falling by confrontational play, again you. Location is still popular, with beautiful views of kanmon Strait, so weather permitting blankly gazing at the sea and relax

  • Where two legendary Samurai fought duels of honour. Miyamoto Musashi and Sasaki Kojiro. Musashi delayed the meeting purposely to destabilize the opponent and still defeated with a bot, when Kojiro was with the sword. Legend. The site must be visited when studying the history of the Samurai. No big deal on site in addition to the statue and the boat used at the time. Access is via Ferry. It's worth it!

  • Is the island is very smal with no shops or anyone living there for long time.The name if the Island was Funejima after the defeat from Musashi the Island name changed to Ganryujima to Honor Sasaki Kojirō who real name was Ganryū Kojirō . The place Is like a big park empty with symbolic grave for Sasaki Kojiro who was defeated by Miyamoto Musashi. You have to get a ferry and takes 10 minutes arrive. Also you can find Statue from this two great Samurais and one boat at the beach where Musashi arrived and fight with Kojiro. At the duel Musashi arrived late making Kojiro impatient and upseted.Some legends say Kojiro was not able to see Musashi really well because his position looking at the sea at Sunset. what may be the mistake that took his life.but this are all legends.
  • Not so much to see but if you're interested by samurai you'll enjoyed it !
  • Guests can enjoy a mote余shita time to be on the island, but

  • And in a short period of time can walk on a tiny deserted island shop is nothing nowhere, so, not to stay for a long time. Kaikyo Yume views from the observation deck of the tower you can.

  • You can go by boat between karato market and Moji port retro area. This area over the prefectures, just play one day. I think family vacations and couples can enjoy.
