Here you will find the uninhabited island of Hyotanjima. This site is very popular as a one-day sea kayak course, and there are sightseeing spots such as the Kousanji temple and the museum of the Japanese painter, Ikuo Hirayama.
Omishima is a popular island that is surrounded by other islands, which is greatly enjoyed by international tourists and native Japanese people alike. You can find the best cable-stayed bridge in the world, Tatara Bridge and Hanaguri Seto, where a tidal current is always flowing. The Hyotanjima and Yokoshima Islands as well as Nojima Murakami Suigun Castle can also be found here. Omishima Island stores 70% of all of Japan's national treasures are stored and is also home to the Oyamazumi shrine, which is said to be the guardian deity of the sea.
When visiting Hakatajima, the sea fortress Nojima Murakami Suigun Castle is a must-see. During low tide, it's possible to get close to the castle when led by a guide. You may also watch Funaori Seto, which has a tidal current of over 10 knots (nautical miles per hour) and is an impressive sight from above. Hakata shio ramen, which you can try in the guesthouse on the island, is also highly recommended.
