Okinoshima is a small island in Tateyama bay, connected to the mainland by a small sandbar. Although it’s tiny (about 1km in diameter) the island is worth exploring.
DO: Walk along the trail and explore the whole island. It doesn’t take long. Along the way you will walk through the woods and along rocky outcrops. On the south side of the island there is a small shrine and a cliff with a cave inside.
Location: Follow the roadsigns around the Self Defense Force base. There is plenty of parking along the beach.
