Really Japan! ?

Blessed with nature, Japan's remote islands are full of wonderful places beyond our imagination!

The world that I do not know may be spreading.

I would like to introduce you to a remote island that looks like a different world, which surprises you, "Is it really Japan?"

Okunoshima | Hiroshima Prefecture

A small island in the Seto Inland Sea, "Okunoshima".

It is also called "Rabbit Island" where about 900 wild rabbits live.

In the early Showa period there was a poison gas factory, so it was also called "island removed from the map", but it is now designated as a national park and one of the popular tourist spots visited by many tourists from Japan and overseas. became.

Rabbits are everywhere on the island! It's a "rabbit paradise".

It seems that rabbit food is sold at convenience stores and supermarkets near Tadanoumi Port and Tadanoumi Station before going to the island.

Rabbits are delicate animals, so follow the rules and gently touch each other.

There are also such shooting spots.

Let's become a rabbit and take a commemorative photo against the backdrop of the beautiful sea.

Higashima | Aichi Prefecture

The closest island from Nagoya is Himakajima.

It is blessed with seafood here, and especially octopus and blowfish are delicious~♡

Eat lots of excellent octopus dishes such as sashimi, fried chicken, and octopus shabu from "octopus round boiled", which is sweet and not hard to boil.

This is "Lover swing".

A swing that is rowing on the sea is like a swing from Heidi.

It seems that you can climb the stairs of Sunrise Beach near the East Port.

This is definitely Instagram!

There is a power spot called "Enrakuji" in Higashima, and there is an interesting legend.

A long time ago, when a Buddhist image of a temple that was said to have been sunk by an earthquake was lifted up, a big octopus hugged to protect it.

After that, the islanders call the Buddha statue "Octopus Amida" and worship it.

It seems that there are benefits of big catch, safety, and descendant Nagahisa.

Sea urchin is famous on Rebun Island, but sea urchin is not the only gourmet food.
