“You need a lot of time here”
Review of Tomogashima Island

Tomogashima Island
Reviewed 1 August 2013

Because if you walk to all the attractions, it can take a while to find them all. Maps are provided and there are road signs, but it is still confusing. I would love to go back to this island with a mountain bike, and spend the better part of a day there. Also the ferry timetable is every two hours, so I found myself rushing around. If you get lost on the island, you will miss the next ferry back. It is best to spend at least four hours on this island, but I was able to see some of the major sites. There is also some old structures not mentioned on the tourist ads, but it's quite fascinating to see the ruins of this old fortress. When I visited in March it was quite cold and windy, so dress appropriately. Also quite surprising for Japan, there is NO food on the island, no gift shop, nothing! So bring snacks. You can get quite hungry with all the hiking. Although there is a hostel type accomodation which was closed when I visited. I think it's only open during the summer.
