  • 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.

  • 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!
