Devil’s washboard aka Oni no sentakuita
This neat looking rock formation is 100% naturally formed. Unbelievable, right? They are only visible during low tides. Read the tidal schedule before visiting.
Devil’s washboard, the name, is derived from the aerial look of the formation. From above, the stones looks like lines surrounding the island. I didn’t do the helicopter, so no pic from me. I did find the aerial photo from the official tourism board for reference.
There are 3 yellow post boxes all over Japan. One of them is here!!!
Also on this small island is the Aoshima Shrine. For more details click here.
How to get here?
From Miyazaki to Aoshima is 30min via JR Rail Nichinan Line. JPY 370 if you don’t have JR pass.
Between Aoshima train station to the island is around 15min by foot.
Coming soon… Bio-hazardous Shrine – Samemachi, Aomori 八戸市鮫町
