Best Tourist Spots In Shodoshima-Island [1-10]

1Angel Road

The sand beach appearing by the tidal range is called Angel Road, and it's said that lovers who cross this road by holding hands can become happy. I recommend to visit here at romantic dusk.◎2 times in a day, you can cross the road during 2 hours before and after low tide. You need to check the time of low tide beforehand.

The Engel Road appears twice a day and totally for only 8 hours at low tide. So, it's 33% emergence rate. if you go there, you must check the time.

2Shodoshima Olive Park

Located at Shodoshima Olive Park, The Greek Windmill was built as a proof of a sister island to Milos Island. And this windmill facing to the beautiful Seto Inland Sea and surrounded with olive trees is a best place to take pictures in Shodoshima Island.◎Access: 5 min walk from a free parking lot of a Road Station: Shodoshima Olive Park. You can also walk from a neighboring Olive Garden.

A live-action movie 'Kiki's Delivery Service' of Miyazaki Movie used this open set. It's located in Shodoshima Olive Park and appeared as a bakery Kiki worked for. The shop 'corico' now sells cute goods and herbs with the movie's atmosphere as it is.◎Located in Shodoshima Olive Park and near the parking lot.

3Nakayama Senmaida

Located at Shodoshima Island, Nakayama Senmaida is one of the 100 most beautiful terraced rice field in Japan. Surrounded by the mountains in the island, the green and gold rice fields spreads like stairs, and it's a comfort scenery of old time in Japan. I thought it beautiful for the first time in my life. The best season is between May and September.◎From the rear of the crowded dinner 'Komame Shokudo', go up by car along the street, then you can find here. A popular photo spot is toward the path of 'no vehicles' to go to the 'Water Spot'.

There is the only one such a beautiful landscape of rice terrace in Kagawa that is selected as the best 100 in Japan. As you see, the contrast between blue and green is nice. I think it symbolizes peaceful Shodoshima Island. As the roads to the photo spots are narrow, going on foot is better than by a car.

4A national park Kankakei Gorge

Kankakei in Shodoshima is one of the three most beautiful valleys in Japan, and best place to see fall foliage. The autumn colored mountains and Seto Inland Sea form indescribable scenery. I like the view seen from Takatori Observatory at the mountain top.◎The first pic taken at Daiichi Observatory. The second and third pics taken at Takatori Observatory. Fall foliage of the mountain top begins from the middle of November, and goes down to the foot. You can enjoy fall foliage for a long term because of the altitude.

Kagawa's best autumn scenery, Kankakei Gorge. The beautiful and impressive view can be seen from the observatory as high as the top of Tokyo Sky Tree. Takatori Observatory offers the superb view!

51000 Years Old Huge Olive Tree

This huge olive tree bears flowers and fruits even now the age of 1000. The unique shape also has the strong life force. Located at a lookout point, it could be nice for you to sit on a bench near the tree and enjoy the Shodoshima Island's time passing slowly.◎Access: the signboard 'Olive Forest オリーブの森' on the 254th prefectural road. 7 min from Tonosho Port by car. You can see it for free.

6Sakate Port

A wall painting 'Shodoshima Engi Emaki' is one of the project of Setouchi International Art Festival. A painter Miki Okamura painted the concept of an artist Kenji Yabe. The close description is an art worth seeing. What's more, very Instagenic!◎It's located at Sakate Port of Shodoshima Jumbo Ferry.

7Shodoshima Furusatomura

I felt like sitting on the sea. A sound of waves, breeze and birds singing. You could feel the sense of unity with the nature.

8Shihozashi Observation Deck

The Utsukushi no Hara Kogen is only plateau in Shodoshima and lucky altitude 777m. You can see the superb view with Setouchi sea and the sky and also famous Kankakei valley. So, you can feel energy of Shodoshima.

9Tengu-iwa Quarry Site

To rebuild Osaka Castle, many stones were quarried out from Shodoshima and carried to Osaka. Tengu-iwa Quarry Site is the largest one where we see the relic of that age. Otengu-iwa estimated to be 1700t is one of them, many impressive huge stones stand magnificently.

10Road Of Hope (Kibo no Michi)

Joga-shima Island has a path that appears by the ebb and flow of the tide, just the same as a popular tourist spot Angel Road in Shodoshima. It's named 'Kibo-no Michi (Road Of Hope)', and has become more popular day by day. It's surrounded by beautiful clear seawater.
