Located off the coast of Toyohoku-cho, Shimonoseki-shi, Yamaguchi Prefecture, the Tsunoshima Island is a small island with beautiful white sand beaches floating in the sea of emerald green.
It is also one of the best tourist attractions in Yamaguchi Prefecture, which is famous as a scenic site and a site for the popular Japanese movie.
You can tour traditional tourist destinations such as the “Tsunoshima Ohashi” and the “Tsunoshima Lighthouse” and also enjoy swimming in seas with high transparency.
You can go one day trip from Fukuoka prefecture.
I will introduce the 5 attractions of Tsunoshima, which is beautiful with nature, and the five tourist destinations that are one of the most attractive.
1. Tsunoshima Bridge
The seaside of Yamaguchi Prefecture’s Sea of Japan is covered by a beautiful coastline, and is also a popular place for swimming and sightseeing boats.
In 2000, the Tsunoshima Ohashi Bridge was created to draw a line that would melt into the surrounding landscape on the Tsunoshima Island, which floats in the Sea of Japan.
A bridge straight between the blue sky and the sea.
On a sunny day, a bridge extending beyond the incredibly deep cobalt blue.
It’s so beautiful that it can be pictured in books that showcase the world’s scenic beauty.
Incidentally, the Tsunoshima-Ohashi is the second most expensive remote island bridge in Japan (1,780 meters long) after the Kouri-Ohashi Bridge (1,960 meters long) in Okinawa Prefecture.
Because of this beauty, it has frequently been featured as a location for a variety of films and commercials, and has won first place in Japan’s “Bridge Ranking” by word of mouth in 2015.
The view of the bridge across the sea of emerald green is a perfect scenery!
Before the bridge, we have a look-out and a rest room, so please spend a nice time here.
