Tsūtenkyō Arch

    • Nature & Scenery
    • Nishinoshima Town
A bridge created by Mother Nature.
Left from what was originally a cave, this arch was formed naturally by coastal erosion wearing away at the surrounding rock. Layers of alternating colours of the arch show us how the islands were formed by repeated volcanic activity. Hop on the sightseeing boat to have a closer look at this stunning arch!
