Historic tales abound: the Koshikishima Route

This route takes you around the three islands of Koshikishima, administratively part of the city of Ichikikushikino. Experience the thrill of cycling as you breeze across the bridges between islands. Beyond the plunging cliffs with their 80 million-year-old geological layers, this is a place steeped in history. Walk through the Japan Heritage-listed "fumoto," or towns where the Satsuma samurai lived, either Sato Fumoto in the north of the islands or Teuchi Fumoto in the south. Also visit the Satsuma Students Museum to discover the young men who contributed to the modernization of Japan.
