Where to Go in Awajishima

Awajishima, the largest island in the Setonaikai Sea, remains a focal point of Japanese tradition while embracing contemporary culture: it was the second island created by the kami gods in the Shinto religion’s creation story, and these days is home to some breathtaking modern architecture and a major attraction celebrating anime culture. Nature lovers can encounter Awajishima’s most famous ‘residents’ at a monkey park, and take in sweeping views from the peak of Mount Oishi.
