Mysterious island surrounded by beautiful natural scenery

Aoshima is a small island with a circumference of about 1.5 km. Aoshima Shrine is located in the center of the island. The strange wavelike rocks that surround the island are the highlight here. They look like giant washboards, so they are called "Washboards of Demons." They have been designated national natural monuments. More than 200 types of plant (e.g., subtropical plants) grow on the island.
