Candle Island (Rosoku-jima)

This rock is a sea stack that uncannily resembles a candle and it looks like a burning candle when the setting sun rests on its peak. Among all the candle-like rocks around the country, this amazing scenery created by the nature is extremely rare. You can see the incredible sight of the candle ‘lit up’ by the setting sun if you take one of the sightseeing boats that leave from Fukuura Beach. If you want to take the cruise make sure to book in advance at the Okinoshima Town Tourism Association. Otherwise, you can enjoy a pretty view of the Candle Island from above in the Ojirobana Park, and for a closer look take the nature trail down to the coast.
