  • From along the runway at Shimojijima Airport, when you look at the sea, you feel as if you've come to a different dimension. The color of the sea is seven changes from marine blue to emerald blue, deep blue to milky green. When the clouds in the sky flow, the color of the sea changes in the shadow part, and it is beautiful!

  • The white sand is very beautiful. However, this cannot be snorkeled. If the timing is right, you can see the airplane flying nearby.
