Himeshima Island is a designated Geopark, located a short 20 minute ferry ride from Kunimi town, in the northern area of the peninsula. This tiny island is only 7km in length and is famous for their delicious tiger prawns and `Kitsune Odori` fox dance festival held every year. The island is best explored by bicycles which are available to rent. Sights to explore include a beautiful lighthouse, Senin-do temple, and a special mineral rich onsen which changes to a milky brown colour once it reacts with air. The ferry service costs ￥1140 for a return ticket (as of 2016) with the last ferry running around 6pm in winter and 7pm in summer.
