Mitsukejima Island Reviews
公園内には無料の駐車場があり、トイレもありますので、車中泊にも適しています。すぐ横には、のとじ荘と言う温泉旅館があり、日帰り温泉は露天風呂から海が一望でき素晴らしい景観を堪能できます。なお、日によって男女の風呂が変わりますので、露天風呂とそうでない風呂が日替わりします。入浴料は、大人600円、小学生300円、幼児(1歳～)200円/となっています。近くにはスーパーがありませんので、車中泊を計画され... more »There is a free parking lot in the park and a restroom, so it is also suitable for staying in the car. Right next to the inn, there is a hot spring inn called Notojiso, and the day-trip hot spring overlooks the sea from the open-air bath and you can enjoy the wonderful scenery. In addition, the bath of the man and woman changes depending on the day, so the open-air bath and the bath which is not so change every day. Bathing fee is 600 yen for adults, 300 yen for elementary school students, 200 yen per infant (from 1 year old). There is no supermarket nearby, so if you are planning to stay overnight in the car, we recommend that you buy food and other items.
周りに岩場の無い所に鋭い舳先を砂浜に向けて座礁している軍艦のように見える別名軍艦島の見附島でした。昔は島の上にお社が有ったそうですが道が崩れてしまったのでお社は砂浜に移設されたそうです。長居する場所ではないと思いますが一見の価値はあるので是非立ち寄って下さい。 more »It was Mitsuke Island of Gunkanjima, which looks like a warship that is running aground for a sandy beach with a sharp tip in a place withno rocks around. In the old days, there was a company on the island, but the road collapsed, so the company was moved to a sandy beach. I think that it is not a place to stay for a long time, but please stop by by all means because it is worth seeing.
When the light is right (a sunny late afternoon is best), this rock provides a stunning view and photo op from the beach. Well worth a stop!
