The Seto Inland Sea changes with each season and time of day.
Twenty eight jewel-like islands of varying sizes dot this beautiful sea,
which was designated as the first national park in Japan.
Among the Shiwaku Islands, there are five populated islands that belong to
Marugame City—Honjima, Ushijima, Hiroshima, Teshima and Oteshima.
These islands are featured in many tales as crossroads where people,
goods and cultures have come and gone since long ago. Visitors can enjoy the nature,
history, culture, art and activities in those tales in the relaxed manner unique to islands.
These are the attractions of the Marugame Shiwaku Islands.
