Can you imagine the scenery under the water around the island "Kamome-jima". The west side of the island has a seep cliff under the water where many big flatfish exists.
The lower part of the island "Kamome-jima" is barren and made of rocks and sand. With salty winds from northwest do not allow plants to take roots.

The island "Kamome-jima"
is connected with the old town of Esashi by this narrow sand beach reinforced with ferro-concrete. The island continued to be carved by the winds and waves.
