Remote island


History, culture, the scenery of a fishing village, fishermen of Hotojima are chosen as "100 selections of history culture property of the fishery fishing village which I want to leave in the future". The island has little level ground, and houses of 3 or 4 stories jostle each other in the tilts from the shore to the mountain and make unique scenery suggesting the Mediterranean Sea.


The Mukushima can enjoy sea bathing and the play with a whore at the natural rich shore. Precious fossils of the time when dinosaurs inhabited are discovered, and, also, the astronomical observation attracts attention recently because people have few light sources.

Ajiro Island

There was the chart seen in Ajiro Island now in "a Triassic period" 200 million years before ... about 250 million years ago, and the most big creature mass extinction is the time just after it that there was in history of the earth.
The rock of the circumference is black and varies from green, purple to red when I cross the way of the sand. It is said to this that I record history of the earth until the time when environment is restored since most of creatures have become extinct by environment with a little oxygen.
