An art work '20th Century Recall' is located at Megijima Island, Kagawa Prefecture. A grand piano with sails at seaside, it looks like a sailing boat. What melody does it play? You can enjoy very photogenic art!

Ehime

Kirozan Observatory

I can't turn my eyes away from the scenery of Shimanami-kaido that suddenly appears in front of me! And also I recognized the design of this observatory was very refined. To my surprised, an architect known in the world, Kengo Kuma designed here. There's nothing that obstructs the view, but only handrails.

Kochi

Shin Kashiwa-jima Ohashi And Kashiwa-jima Bashi

Kashiwa-jima has got into the topic of SNS and the media very much since this year. These two bridges are the first place where you should take pictures. The sea is so beautiful and clear that the seafloor can be seen. I can't say nothing but I wanted to know earlier!

Okinawa

Hateruma Port

From the breakwater at Hateruma Port, you can have a whole view of Nishi Beach and breathtaking beautiful ocean spreads in fromt of your eyes. To spend easily on the breakwater and gaze into the ocean is so luxury time I have ever had. You may meet sea turtles♪

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.

Shimoji Airport 17 End

The northern end of an airport for training in Shimoji Island. The beautiful view from here takes our breath away. Once here was famous for the plane touch-and-go, but without that, this wonderful view is worth visiting.
