View the weird rock formations (the washboards) and sample the local shopping in the road house. Sample your first mango ice cream if just arrived at this part of Japan or even shrimp icecream or one of the other alternatives. Called in when driving south to the lighthouse. Road stop for tourists groups. WC available.

A good site for viewing Aoshima on the left in far distance, and found the lines of eroded rocks extended further to the right on the coastline of Nichinan. Little disappointed as I thought I could watch the aerial view of Aoshima (as in post card) from there. It was very windy in mid-Oct.

Along the way to Udo-Jingu Shrine, stopped at this beautiful site to admire the beautiful view. The amazing rock formation always interesting as looked like scales or spines of a dragon.

Typical ocean road journey, places to stop and take breathtaking pictures, and memories of your trip. It is more stimulating than taking the highway.
