They say it was once home to Hirano Niemon’s family, hence the name Niemonjima. It’s designated one of the prefecture’s Places of Scenic Beauty and one of New Japan’s Top 100 Sights. It’s decorated with haiku by a famous poet engraved in stone pillars, and is home to plants like the rare kinginharinasu, daffodils, hydrangea and more, which keep the island in bloom year round.
