NATURE: Itoshima

A largely undiscovered gem on Japan’s southernmost island of Kyushu, the coastal town of Itoshima has it all: pristine beaches, forest trails, mountains fit for hiking and secluded waterfalls. Renowned for its laid-back atmosphere and natural beauty, a trip to Itoshima is the perfect come-down after a stint in Japan’s brilliantly chaotic capital.

Not-to-be-missed are a trip to Futamigaura Bay, where the sun sets romantically over two rocky outcrops known as ‘the married couple’, or take a stroll across the singing sands of Anego-no-hama, where your feet create a squeaky song with each step. Hike through Mount Hagane’s maple trees to Shiraito Falls or get your culture fix with a visit to Studio Kura – the driving force behind Itoshima’s flourishing arts scene.
