Fukuurajima is connected to the mainland by Fukuura-bashi Bridge (also known as Deai (Encounter) Bridge) painted brilliant vermillion with a total length of 252 meters. It costs 200 yen for adults and 100 yen for children to cross the bridge. Nevertheless, it is worth crossing! You will arrive at Fukuurajima by crossing over the bridge while a pleasant breeze blows. There are approximately 250 species of plants (e.g., red pine, cedar and fir) growing on the island. There is a nature park set up with a trail, so you can have lots of fun taking a walk. It also has a tea house and other facilities.
You can take photographs brimming with the beauty of nature against a backdrop of beautiful islands in the bay as seen from Fukuurajima. It is photogenic. In addition, the color of the sea changes depending on the time you visit. The views of the sea in the morning, daytime and early evening each have their charms.
