"The Jidan Peninsula is located in the western part of Hokkaido, about 2H from Sapporo, and the name is derived from Ainu and means "summer village". The Jidan Peninsula has a 30KM coastline, and the surrounding area is designated as the second ancient Jidan Otaru Coast National Park, and it is the only designated sea park in Hokkaido. The fishery village along the coastline of the shikotan Peninsula developed as a fishing village in the late Taisho period from the Edo period to the end of the Taisho period, and it was developed as Rumoi and Busan near Hakodate, and the fishery resources were exhausted. In addition to the beautiful coastal scenery, there are abundant hot spring resources, but due to the inconvenience of transportation and sparse population, tourism has not developed. It is for this reason, it can become a scenic but not tourists gathering in the excellent scenic spots. The peninsula has two seagulls stretching into the sea, the jack dan gull and the gods, where visitors often go. The gods are also Ainu, meaning the place where the gods live. There is a promenade extending to the sea, about 770M, because the road is side by side cliffs, strong wind weather is prohibited. At the end of the road, a huge rock up to 41 meters in the sea - Shengwei Rock. The ancient gods and gods are forbidden to women, and there is still a sign at the entrance of the gods and gods and gods, of course, now accessible. It is said that when minamoto no Yoshitsune came to Hokkaido, the daughter of the chief of the ainu tribe in Hidaka District followed him. But it is said that the source Yoshikyo has left the ship here, desperate to jump into the sea incarnate the god rock, and there is a curse: every ship carrying women will sink through here. According to the history of the sea of the devil, it is said that the Japanese woman who passes through the sea of the sea is angry at the sea god, and the ship sinks, and the fishery is not good. Therefore, in the Edo period, the entry of women from Yamato races to the domain was prohibited in 1691 years of Matsumae CHO, Hokkaido. This prohibition was not lifted until 1855 years at the end of the Bakufu (Japanese feudal government headed by a Shogun), but it was not clear until the Bakufu (Japanese feudal government headed by a Shogun) Iesada Tokugawa dispatched his subordinates to bombard the God of the God with artillery."

"The scenery on the island is really amazing, and the cats are even more cute. Everyone boasted a lot, and talked about some points to note when going to the island. First of all, there are only three boats on the island every day except in midsummer. If you want to return on the same day, no matter what, take the boat at 9 o'clock in the morning. If you are departing from Sendai, you must take the 6:32 train on the Sengoku Line, otherwise it will definitely be too late to catch. There is only one restaurant on the island (Tashiro Island Cat Republic) and two vending machines confirmed to be available. Although meals are not a problem, other supplies (water, sanitary supplies, etc.) are best purchased in advance. It should be noted that there are no convenience stores along the way from Ishinomaki Station to Ishinomaki Port. The only convenience store is in Ishinomaki Station. Please be sure to buy anything there. If you use google maps, it will prompt you that there is a family mart on that road. The reality is that the store has been torn down this year. The mobile base stations on the island only support NTT docomo. Mobile phones can support, some Japanese mobile wifi has no signal. Although there are paved roads on the island, the up and downhills are very steep. Be mentally prepared for a little effort. The Cat Republic of Tashiro Island on the top of the island can eat and rest. The cats on the island are mainly concentrated in the port, the cat shrine, and the way up the mountain from the village next to Nittota Port (the port where the ship is disembarked). If you choose to turn right from Nittoda Port and go straight up the mountain, you will not encounter a cat until the Cat Shrine. Due to the destruction, Dabo Port is still under repair. There is a small group of cats in the harbor, which is hard to find. There is a Luming Shrine in the village by the harbor, but it needs to climb a short mountain. When going down the mountain, please be aware that some of the steps were damaged and loosened during the earthquake. The cats on the island are relatively family-except for a short-tailed brown cat near the mobile base station. If you need to bring cat food to the island, please use special cat food instead of human food. There are several family marts in the northwest of Sendai Station that sell cat food and canned cats. One pack of 800g cat food sold in the store is not enough. Finally, if you go to the island in summer, please be prepared for sun protection and mosquito prevention. Don't ask how I know..."
