Nature at Omijima and Shopping at Senzakitchen

Explore Omijima brimming with nature and exciting spots

Omijima Island is part of the Kita-Nagato Kaigan Quasi-National Park, an area protected for its scenic natural beauty. With approximately 40 kilometers of breathtaking coastline, including sheer cliffs and ocean-carved monolithic rocks, it has earned the nickname the "Alps of the Sea". Omijima Island is a grand display of nature's art.

In the summertime, the sun aligns between two rock pillars that rise from the bay, making for an exotically beautiful sight when it sets between them.

The famous Japanese painter Kaii Higashiyama used the wild waters of Omijima as a motif for an enormous wall painting in the Tokyo Imperial Palace, completed in 1968. The finished piece, titled “Tide at Daybreak,” measures 3.8 meters tall and 14.3 meters in length. To Higashiyama, the waters of Omijima Island proved to be the perfect representation of coastal Japan.
