Awaji Island is the place where Japanese gods are said to have been born in “Kojiki.” Now the island is connected to Honshu by a bridge, so you can easily go there by car. Awaji Island is rich in nature and you can see various flowers, plants and animals. When spring comes, you can enjoy the magnificent scenery of rape blossoms and tulips. It is becoming popular as a cycling road, so let’s go there when it gets warm.
