Explore Obi Castle Town, a preserved samurai district built during the Edo period and once home to the Obi Clan. Visit the historical museum and its nearly 220 exhibits of armors and swords that belonged to the Obi Clan, and then walk to the Yoshokan – the old samurai residence located at the top of Obi Castle’s Ote-mon Gate. After a delicious lunch at a local restaurant, visit Aoshima-jinja. This impressive structure stands in the center of the island and is well-known as a shrine of matchmaking. As you make your way along the coastline, take in beautiful views of the ocean and of the Devil's Washboard, a natural phenomenon of wave-like rock formations.
