  • It's perfect for a relaxing time! It is also good to walk around town in search of licking and hunsake, and it is also recommended to take a sightseeing boat to the island opposite and take a hot spring bath.

  • If you think of it as an island, it's a cape, and if you think of it as a cape, it's an island. Because it was a small town, I walked around here and there. I found the grave of the morishita family, the founder of Morishita Nitan. There was also a bronze statue of Michio Miyagi, and there was also a monument of colored paper and a rose directed by Hayao Miyazaki, so we were able to enjoy treasure hunting.
