Shimokamagarijima Island is linked to mainland Honshu via the Akinada Bridge and is the gateway to the Akinada Tobishima Kaido.
In the distant past, the island developed as a maritime transport hub in the Seto Inland Sea and was a port of call for foreign ships and feudal lords traveling back and forth between their domains and the capital of Edo.
Through local efforts to preserve its history, culture and the garden island concept, Japanese traditional architecture and pine tree-lined roads complete the island’s beautiful scenery.
In the south of the island, visitors can enjoy beautiful beaches and great views at this hub of seaside leisure, Kenmin no Hama (the Citizens’ Beach) and other places.
Nanakunimiyama, located in the center of the island, is a great spot for hiking and has a beautiful view that stretches across the Seto Inland Sea.
The port town on the south side of the island offers a range of mountain and marine goods.
Kamikamagarijima is the biggest island on the Akinada Tobishima Kaido. It is a resort island, brimming with charm and blessed with a rich natural environment.
