To the uninhabited small island, Shingu Island
Shingu Island is an uninhabited islet about 100m away from Suo Oshima, but it is possible to cross to Shingu Island by way of the Uminonakamichi Road, which appears only three hours before and after low tide.
The sandy beach is connected to the ground, and the sight is quite mysterious.
*When the low tide is at 15:00, you can cross to the island between 12:00 and 18:00. The time of low tide differs depending on the season.
We will return home, reflecting on our enjoyable trip to Seto Nouzutsu.
