Tsutajima Islands

Just 1km off coast from the civilization, these two islands offer us the tranquility beauty and incredible range of outdoor experiences. The region enjoys some of the highest sunshine hours in Japan.

Caves and Tide Pools

We have large tidal variations in the Seto Inland Sea, its tidal difference becomes as high as 4 meters. When the tide goes up, unique sea caves and rock formations can be cruised by kayaks and SUPs. On the other hand, numerous tidal pools emerge at low tides. It’s a fun for even adults to find small marine creatures in the pool.
