Chikuzen Maebaru Station

Chikuzen Maebaru Station

I came here, Itoshima City!

On the Itoshima Peninsular there are a farmer’s market for local fresh agricultural and marine products, many studios, stores, cafes, and restaurants.

Today I am going to cycle around attractive Itoshima. Let’s go!

 

Kojiro Bicycle Rental Station

 Kojiro Bicycle Rental Station

In itoshima bicycles can be rented at Kojiro Bicycle Rental Station in front of Chikuzen Maebaru Station.

Of course, these are electric. A person with a motor bicycle license can even rent a motor bicycle.

In addition, Itoshima Loop Bus runs on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays.

Itoshima Oen Plaza

Itoshima Oen Plaza

First I visited Itoshima Oen (backup) Plaza, Works of woodcrafters and potters in Itoshima are displayed and sold.

Itoshima’s sightseeing information is also provided. So I got a lot of information.

Cycle

It is nice to feel a breeze!

There are lots of cars.

Shima no Shiki (Shima’s four seasons)!

Shima no Shiki (Shima’s four seasons)!

Shima no Shiki’s famous fish rice bowl

A lot of people are here.

So many!

 

What kind of store is Shima no Shiki?

 

Itoshima’s fish and vegetables are sold here.

It is directly managed by Itoshima Fisheries Cooperative Association, so fishermen directly bring in fish every morning.

 

Now sea breams are in season.

The Itoshima’s catch of red sea bream is one of the largest in Japan. Sea breams are caught by nets of fishing boats.

 

Can fresh fish be enjoyed at this store?

 

A fish rice bowl restaurant is in our store.

Fish rice bowls using fish from fishermen can be enjoyed there.

 

This is a Shima no Shiki’s famous fish rice bowl.

Lots of ingredients are on top of rice. It has nice texture and is delicious.

Fresh and sweet. The flesh is firm.

 

This soy sauce flavoring tastes good, too. Great!

 

 

Futamigaura Beach

Meoto Rocks of Futamigaura Beach

It is refreshing. I see Futamigaura Beach now.

There are so many people.

 

What are you doing?

 

We are hanging a large sacred rope.

The rope is 30 centimeters in diameter and 30 meters long, and weighs a ton. An old one is being replaced with a new one.

You can see a wire there …The rope will be hung there.

From now a shrine ritual in which it is hung starts.

 

Is this held once a year?

 

Yes, once a year.

This is held at spring tide.

 

Now a rope is being hung. It is a ton in weight. Wow!

A sacred rope in which people’s wish is contained has reached to the midpoint.

Finally the rope has been hung between the Meoto (husband and wife) Rocks.

While many people are watching, with about 50 men’s power a large sacred rope has been hung between the rocks!

 

Futamigaura’s Meoto Rocks which is in the sea, 120 meters from the shore is well known for the beautiful sunset while Futamigaura Beach in Ise City is for the sunrise.

Especially the sunset between the two rocks in midsummer is breathtaking.

Café, Tosuien

Café, Tosuien Ice Cream Brulee.

The last fun of Itoshima tour is this. A Tosuien’s popular sweet, an ice cream brulee.

Wow! The top is crispy!

The inside looks like an ice cream.

Let’s eat!

Good! It is made using Itoshima’s eggs. The cream is very thick.

So smooth. After a lot of exercise by cycling, it is nice to have a sweet.

Conclusion

I was thinking that I can not visit Itoshima without a car, but if I use a train and rent an electric bicycle or motor bicycle, I can have a fun day like today!

Itoshima is great!

I really want to visit here again!
