Omijima Island (National Designated Place of Scenic beauty & Natural Monument)
Here, caves, sheer cliffs, and stone pillars rise out of the blue seas! Take in the wild scenery in one sweeping view.
With sheer cliffs, a tunnel made by natural stone pillars, and the unusually-shaped rocks that form its coastline, this place of incredible scenic beauty has earned the nickname, the "Alps of the Sea." Visitors can enjoy both the walking course along the island, as well as sightseeing cruises on the water. Visitors can also ride the Omijima Island Sightseeing Steamboat.
