It offers a variety of outdoor activities to experience the four seasons and takes advantage of the beautiful sea and greenery. People that go there are sure to experience the charm that Shima City is known for, being in step with nature.
Programs you can experience are sea kayaking tours around the sea, walking tours around Shima's fishing villages with a guide, cycling tours that can be enjoyed throughout the year and SUP (stand up paddleboard) for a limited time.
