Shimoji Island Tori-ike

Area

Since old times, this mysterious pond is the source of many myths, among which is a mermaid legend. While the pond is connected with the ocean underwater, from above it looks like two ponds linked by a natural stone bridge, and is also referred to as “dragon eyeballs.” The cave bottom is approximately 10 meters deep and is connected to the ocean, making it a famous dive spot. The quality of fresh and sea waters and the temperature difference found in the thermocline phenomenon created a wonderful spectacle of ever-evolving colors.
