Tomogashima Islands


View on Map

Twenty minutes by ferry from Kada, Tomogashima is a small group of islands off the coast of Wakayama. You can hike, picnic and camp on Okinoshima, the main island, where the main draw is the ruins of an abandoned military fort. The dilapidated red brick structures and overgrown vegetation give the island an uncanny resemblance to Laputa, the floating island in the Studio Ghibli movie Castle in the Sky.
