Travel Info

Toguchinohama Beach

The beautiful beach makes me disbelieve my own eyes. 'Toguchi no Hama' is said to be the most beautiful beach in Irabu Island. So, it's like a paradise with white sand.

Sankakuten Irabujima

The view spot attracts many people the most in Irablu island. The ocean view called Ira Blue is amazing, and seen only in Irabu island.

Ao no Dokutsu Cave

There are some blue caves in Japan but one of them in Irabu island is the most transparent. I felt like coming to the fantastic world.

Sawada Coast

One of the 100 beautiful shores in Japan, and scenic spot spreading from Irabu Island to Shimoji Island. Big rocks lying on the sea sloped gently away and the shore change its expressions by the ebb and flow of the tide. I'd like you to visit there when the setting sun is reflected on the quiet water surface like a mirror.

Nudokubiabu

It is difficult to visit here without guide. Roots of Indian laurel dangle and sunbeams come through the leaves in the sanctuary cave. And you should worship before entering because it is a spiritual place and was also a air‐raid shelter.

Irabuohashi Bridge

The longest toll-free bridge between Miyako island and Irabu island in Japan opened on January 31, 2015. You can enjoy driving while seeing the ocean called Ira-Blue.
