Angel Road, Tonosho-cho

Must See
When tides go out, the pristine clean sand of Angel Road creates a narrow path to three small islands of Shodoshima. Twice a day, when the tides are low and the sandbar emerges, visitors come to enjoy mesmerizing vistas across the ocean and lush islands. See small crabs wiggling through the interesting sand formations, and write a wish on small wooden plaque (ema), which you can hang on a branch for fulfillment. Legend has it that couples who walk along the road hand in hand will have happiness together. Check tide times before going.

  • Lead to full island at low tide, but the road? Too thick (at low tide too)? I'm not connected Islands and from the beginning? And so there is something wrong. Or about 1 hour at low tide, or at one time, it washes fine land, where views of Angel road winds a while! Environment connected with the land areas at low tide high tide there is seven places in Japan? With that. There are two places, Road Angel road and hope of Shodo-Shima Island! By all means in the way you wish!

  • Unlike the Book of travel books, the tide retreats for half a day, remembering to go to the center of the tour. There are different stores in the vicinity, living in that close to the code, and convenient to visit the angel in different times, to avoid the crowds of travelers, enjoy the beauty of the angel of different time, go to the end of the cliff to shoot a photo is already designated action.

  • just a tombolo but the scenery changes every minute. simply serene to look at. couples will love their "locks" spot under the "wishing tree"...
  • Okay to see but doesn't worth the trip to island if you just come for the Angel road
  • One of the most amazing places you will ever visit! You can literally walk out to three seperate and distinct islands, though if you make it all the way out to the third island don't spend too much time like we did, we almost didn't get back without having to swim!!
  • Scenic location where the sand bar disappears às the tide rises. Make sure you come at low tide to take many photos and walk the beautiful area
  • Very scenic walk, amazing views. Worth the visit.
