Nushima, where the legend of Onokoro Island lives on, is said to be the birthplace of the nation in Japanese mythology, and is the most likely of several possible sites on and off Awaji Island. Nushima is dotted with many shrines and temples, including Onokoro Shrine, Benzaiten Shrine, Jinguji Temple, and Nushima Hachiman Shrine, and the island is also the site of lively local festivals such as the Spring Festival, Hamo no Kuyo Festival, and Bon Odori. In addition, the island is a tourist destination where visitors can enjoy oddly-shaped rock cruises around the island, swimming in the sea, and fresh seafood dishes. Why not visit this island rich in tradition?
