We visited during summer.
It was windy and good to take a walk.
There aren't much things to do on the island.
But, we liked looking around.

Saw this is a guidebook and decided we must go. So happy we did. The whole community has a great laid back surfer vibe. The gardens in the town are beautiful. Countless people came up to us to have a quick chat. Wish we had stayed a night there.

The washboard is fantastic. Such a unique and interesting formation that carries on down the coast for miles. This is the easiest spot to stop and have a look at. As others have done, we timed our visit for low tide to get the best effect. Daytrip from Miyazaki-shi. The temple on the island has a very lovely garden area tucked into the centre. Very interesting.

Really enjoyed our day there.

Aoshima Devil's Washboard is a very unique rock formation by waves. We checked the low tide time so you can have full view of the washboard. If you are in Miyazaki this is the place you must visit n touch the washboard.
There a few restaurants n shops near so you may have some shopping there. We had a nice time in Aoshima.

The path connecting the island and Aoshima is surrounded by the famous Devil's Washboard which a spectacular landscape worth visiting.

We came from Myzaki by rental car and parked for free in the JR station and had a lovely walk to and around the island. Watched school children doing sports on the beach and noted ads for an international surf event in the area. The shrine was beautiful and the washboard rocks amazing. We would liked to have had more time to explore this interesting area.

Check the time of the low tide on the day of your visit as the main attraction, the Devil’s Washboard, will only be exposed in full view then. It is completely submerged under water as the tide rushes in. If you could not time your visit accordingly, you could still catch a glimpse of the bizarre looking rocks near the beach. Standing on the bridge linking the mainland to the island you can see and hear the waves coming in from opposite directions towards the shore clashing and foaming — a consolation prize for having missed the Devil’s Wasboard.

The temple and the rock formations are worth a visit. Come at low tide or else the devil's washboard is flooded.

Aoshima is a free spirited beach place. In summer months there is a designated swim area with life guards and there is a beach park which has many foods such as burgers, rice bowls, and wine! You can try surfing too. There is a unique looking shrine across the bridge, all accessible by walking from the train station. On the 4th Sunday of every month there is a market which has lots of organic and handicraft stuff.

I went in the evening to avoid people. It was very peaceful place especially in the evening. I didn’t know much about the place and just started walked around. Then I found a shrine behind the bush. It was mysterious but lovely place.

A short regional train trip from Miyazaki it is well worth the visit to this amazing island and to view the geological formations surrounding it and the southern coastal reaches of Kyushu.
