With a white sandy beach, clear blue water, a lighthouse, a simple and colorful “church,” seaside grasses with wildflowers, and adjacent rocky cliffs, this campground is one of my favorites in Japan. There's also a nature center. You can pitch a tent here for about 2,000 yen or rent a bungalow during the season (083-786-0477). Tsunoshima is most peaceful between sunset and early morning when the daytime crowds are gone and the sound of the waves prevails.
