Angel Road, Tonosho-cho

#2 of 33 in Things to do in Shozu-gun
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.

    Around who said... "eh? Here's a? ". Expecting little long beautiful sand road is a little different from photo guide book. This is where satisfactory if you go once again.

    There are signs the private land is out for a good season and and requires quite a lot. It may be when friends are still going out to hear your impressions were so expectations are too big. Was check tide times is becoming tourist environment, was feeling sorry as the landscape. If you want to keep the promotion as a tourist attraction in the future a little bit, region of comprehensive strategic consideration is needed I think. A hot day's walk from the ferry terminal. We use bicycles here. Is very convenient and preferred hotels and souvenir shops.

    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
