Inhale the salty air, play catch with the kids and catch some rays at the nearby beach called Tanesashi Beach. This is the perfect place to head to when you are are ready for a break from touring. Enjoy the feel of your bare feet as you walk along the water’s edge or just enjoy the peace.
Sometimes melancholic, sometimes beautifully romantic, the castles and other defensive structures in this region are always excellent to tour. When you come across the distinct design of the historic Nejo Castle, it is easy to conjure up images of how local rulers once fought for this area.
The Kabushima Shrine is the ideal attraction to wrap up your stay in this fascinating city.
