Minokoshi Coast

Travel Guide - Minokoshi Coast


Minokoshi, literally "leaving unseen" a reef-bound seacoast similar to Tatsukushi is so named because, in the old days, sightseers denied themselves a visit to this area since the route was extremely trying despite its rare and beautiful scenery. Today, the coast is accessible in 30 minutes by a glass-bottomed boat from Tatsukushi.
