This canal was built in 1915 by local people before heavy machinery was available in the Oki Islands.
This 330m long narrow canal cuts through central Nishinoshima joining the inner sea with the outer Sea of Japan.
Before the canal was made the boats had to be laboriously transported overland.
Enjoy walking alongside the small canal and watching fishing boats travel by.
You can walk along Sotohama Beach as well - located next to the canal.
You will travel through this canal if you take a sightseeing boat tour.
