This is Aoshima-jima, where a traditional Shinto temple has stood for more than 1000 years. There is nothing on the island except the temple and associated buildings, and it is a very pleasant and peaceful place, even for non-Japanese with no connections to the Shinto religion. The island is a raised dome of the typical washboard sedimentary rock of this area, and on significant typhoon swells, a good left breaks off the island. The wave is long and workable, and the unique surroundings produce a very Japanese surfing experience.
