Mt. Tonba, with an altitude of 186 m, is located on Shimanoura Island, the only isolated island with residents in Miyazaki prefecture. Over the years, the trail on this mountain has been improved and maintained manually by residents of the island. 33 Kannon (Buddhist deity of mercy) statues are located along the trail, and in spring, blooming Rhododendron dilatatams are visible in a pink colored tunnel. Visitors can enjoy phenomenal views from the island’s lighthouse or at the Nakayama cliff.
Hike along an old island road while enjoying a superb view!
