Akiya Coast


According to legend, a goddess gave a birth here.


This is a fantastic place to explore the rocky coast of the Oki Islands, watch ferries go by and relax in the sunshine. You can camp and swim here in the summer.
The striking red and black volcanic rocks, as well as the heart-shaped hole in the rock make for some great photographs! Its bright red color contrasts beautifully against the blue-green sea. Make sure you walk to the end of the track where you can see the “heart in the rock”.
This coast is formed by scoria (a porous volcanic rock) and other volcanic ejecta from a nearby volcano that erupted 2.8 million years ago.
You can enjoy looking at these close up along the walking trail on the coast.
