This small island, only 12 kilometre in circumference, was the site where a national treasure of Japan, the golden seal, was discovered. The seal is an ancient one, thought to be from 2000 years ago, given to Japan by the Emperor of China. And though now the seal itself is in the Fukuoka Museum, the spot of its discovery has been transformed int a beautiful park with flowers for every season. From the highest point on the island, atop an observation deck is one of the finest views the city has to offer - the sea, the harbour on the mainland, and the beautifully illuminated panorama of the city itself. The atmosphere on the island is rustic and rural. Visitors should come hungry - the many stalls along the harbourside serve some of the best seafood around. Check out the fishermen's shrine. Several kilometres east of the shrine, you will find a popular beach.

  • Not much going on here, but sometimes that’s a good thing. It’s just far. Nice, gold, clean beaches and not overly crowded.

  • Very little opportunities for water access but otherwise a good sight

  • Beautiful sea beach

  • 某人気アイドルの出身地だそうだが、公表しちゃいけないよ!そのアイドルが所属するグループのホームページではファンの逸脱した行動に警鐘を鳴らしているのに。家族やアイドルの地元の友達に危害が及んだらどうするの?とてもじゃないけれど警察がくるまで時間がかかりそうだし。安室奈美恵の母のような人を出さないほうがいいよ!

  • 生涯で一度は、訪ねたい場所の1つでした。国宝金印の出土した島です。どうしてここから見つかったのか。なぜ此処に有ったのか。何に使用されたのか。見つかった時の状態は。など謎だらけですが、国宝になっています。大陸と一番近い土地である関係は、理解できますが想像の域をでません。ただ穏やかな海と黒く浮き立つ島々を眺めていると長い時間が、感じました。遠くには福岡ドームの大きな建物をみながら、小さな岡の上から眺められます。二センチ程の金の印鑑の長い謎が、あるばかりです。足の弱いお方でも緩いスロープの登り階段がありますので、ゆっくりと時間をかけて上ることができます。周辺は、工場や住宅に開発が進んでいます。インフラも同時に進んで新しく環境の良いところになりつつありました。
