Angel Road, Tonosho-cho

3.9
#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.

  • Go to Angel Road if you are looking for scenic views and leisure easy walk along seashore. Go there on a fine day and make sure it is low tide when you arrive there. Otherwise, you cannot walk on the ...  more »
  •  You want to visit from looking through the time of low tide. Overlaps with the sunset time in addition to lovely scenes earned it. The sunshine sea shining is like looking at could and would never get bored.

  • It takes time to go with the tides to appreciate this dreamy sight. And the hands of the dear hand to walk in Heaven Road, will really be happy oh. Or you can walk up a little hill and appreciate the beauty of the sunset.

  • Check tide times before going. Lots of cool geology and during the lowest point, it connects all the way to another island (used as a YMCA camp). Completely free attraction that is worth going. The water looks great but upon closer inspection, wasn't all that clean nor suitable for swimming (lots of seaweed, etc.). Spent about 1 hr walking around. Backup parking lot behind the nearby Shimamura store.
  • Crossing the road is fun when sea water started to flood some part of it. Don't forget to visit the bell spot at the entrance rock. Best pictures can be taken there. Have fun.
  • Nice place for photos but better go there when the sand road is available for walking.
  • Nice views, sea, islands. Pleasant walk. Come when the tide is low.
  • Absolute must! Easy walk from Tonosho Port.
