Rōsokujima Island—Rōsokujima Sightseeing Boat

Basic data

Facility summary and accessibility conditions

Oki, Dōgo.
Rōsokujima is a 20-meter high rock.
When the sun sets on its top, it looks like a gigantic candle.
But you can see that scene only on a boat.
There is a ramp for boarding.
But the aisle inside the boat is only about 40 cm wide.
So wheelchair users have to get off the chairs, move into the boat and use normal seats in the boat.
At the entrance there are two-step stairs.
If you inform them that you’re a wheelchair user at the time of reservation, they can get you a seat near the entrance.
