Going back to old times by walking on a street surrounded by Korga stone on Niijima Island

2020.2.12|Niijima

On Niijima Island, you will notice houses, walls, and statues made with Korga stone, the island’s specialty. “Sunangoi no Michi” is a street lined with walls made with Korga stone, which has been preserved from the old days. The “pig hut made with Korga stone” is a stone building, which is very rare in Japan. If you take a walk around the main street in the Honmura Area and the streets in the Wakago Area, you will feel a keen sense of nostalgia. Niijima will provide you a “time slip” to days gone by while you enjoy strolling around the area.
