Angel Road, Tonosho-cho

3.8
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.

  • I stayed at a hotel close to Angel Road, so it was very nice to see angel road being made from the hotel. Because the time when the road appears every day by the tide is different, it seems to be able to enjoy it further when it is time which was in the timing of the full moon, the sunrise, and the timing of the sunset.

  • That's it. Please check the time of low tide. There is also an observatory overlooking Angel Road. It might be a good idea to play because there is a space to wash your feet even if you walk barefoot on the sandy beach.

  • Amazing scenery! Make sure check the tide timetable before you come to visit here.
  • Beautiful scenery! Make sure to go to the website and check the tide timetable, 3 hours before and after the lowest tide time is the best time slot to see the Angel Road.
