Trip to Hitsuishijima Part 1 | Setouchi Islands Japan

Views: time(s)

An island where you can watch trains rush past you?!

It’s time for a second island tour in Setouchi! This time, we head to “Hitsuishijima”, part of Sakaide City in Kagawa Prefecture.

Right after arrival, we encounter the once-a-yaer “Momote Festival”.

It’s a curious ceremony where people loose arrows at a target!

We also check out some of the viewpoints known only to islanders.

One of them lets you get up close to trains rushing by!

We found sights you’ll only see on Hitsuishijima!
