Rōsoku-jima (Candle Island) ローソク島
From Saigō Port - - 50 min No bus service -
A uniquely shaped 20-meter-high rock stack lying off the coast. When the setting sun rests on its peak, it creates a fascinating scene that looks like a burning candle.

You can see this spectacular sight on the Rōsoku-jima Sightseeing Boat. This must be booked in advance at the Okinoshima Tourism Association.

The rock itself can be seen from above from a distance at the lookout in Ōjirobana Park, Goka Area or from the Kumi Coast, Kumi Area. You can also follow the trail down to the second lookout on the coast in Ōjirobana Park.
