Kudakajima Island, Nanjo

4.5
#2 of 6 in Nature in Nanjo
Sometimes referred to as “"the island of the God,"” folklore says that the god Amamikiyo descended on the heavenly Kudakajima Island and introduced multi-grains essential for life. Arriving at the ferry port, you can peruse some gift shops and grab a bite to eat, including the opportunity to sample a local delicacy, the deadly seasnake (hand-captured by the islanders). Consider hiring a bike at the port, a good way to get around the island, but be aware that some areas are sacred and you won't be able to set foot there. Take a map from the ferry to identify the forbidden areas. Plan my Nanjo trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
