A very pleasant walk around the island can be accomplished in half an hour to an hour. The highlight was definitely the shrine in the middle, with a jungle-like feel. The palm trees are also a nice touch. Worth an hour of your timer if...More

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 Aoshima Island is a must see for first time visitors. The small island is surrounded by natural rock formations known as “devil’s washboard”. When you walk across the bridge to the island, you can choose to follow the round the island path on either...More

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.

It was a cold but wonderfully sunny Christmas Day when we visited which made it just perfect. We loved the ambience in the temple and really liked wandering across the fascinating rock formations, the devil's washboard. We took countless photos of the red torii gate...More

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.

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
