About this sight

Locally known as a popular hiking spot, this designated national scenic spot is great for chilling out or having a leisurely picnic. It's found on the east side of Dogojima along the Jodogaura Coast with its contrasting reefs and clear blue ocean shore that stretches on for over a kilometer. In Japanese, "Jodo" means "Pure land in Buddhism".

Japanese Zen Buddhist monk Ikkyu Sojun once visited this place, and praised it to be the Land of Pure and Happiness. Ancient pines on this island have endured the moist ocean wind and flourished over the years, creating a beautiful landscape worthy of a painting. The scenery here has also inspired postal stamp designs, spreading its fame nationwide. This spot is also a marine park, with many scuba divers frequenting its waters.
