Aug.

Floating in an offshore area about 4km from Takamatsu, the island is famous as the "Onigashima" that appears in the "Legend of Momotaro." The distinct windbreak that hits the island created its unique landscape, and enabled the wide opening of the Great caves where the "Oni" or Ogre lived. The "Basaltic columnar joint" at the exit of the cave is a designated National Treasure.
