We walking from Aoshima beach to Island. You can see a lot of natural rock everywhere. The rock is interesting & particular. There’s no car can enter to this island. You must park your car in the parking area before go.

The volcanic rock formations are unusual, in a similar vein to the Giants Causeway in Antrim in Ireland. The shrine on the island nothing special. However the wooden train that leaves from Miyazaki is worth booking and taking.

Very cool to be able to get to the island by way of a walk bridge. Interesting exhibits and some items for sale.

we walked here to take a look at the shrine on the island but found that the real draw was actually the "devil's washboard" surrounding the island! we woke up really early to catch the sunrise and it was a great and interesting view.

A nice walk on a clear day across the bridge to the island. Have a close-up look at what the locals call "The Devil's Washboard" along the way. The island is a quiet stroll through nature unless you are part of a large tour group.

The drive along the Nicheman coast afforded amazing views of the Pacific Ocean before we reached Aoshima. The walk from here across the bridge to the Island was relaxed and enjoyable. The view of the ground level rock formations formed by nature on either side...More

You have the wrong Aoshima Island against the question if the Guardian story is correct. Aoshima Island that you have picked of is the one in Miyazaki prefecture. Been there, it has a shrine and a nice walk but not a lot of... More
