West of Dōgo, Nishino-shima (西ノ島) boasts the stunningly rugged Kuniga coastline, with the sheer 257m Matengai cliff. The coastal hike here is a must-do. The island is also home to interesting shrines, including Yurahime-jinja, near a small inlet. Legend has it that squid come en masse to this inlet every autumn/winter to ask forgiveness from the deity (there are pictures at the shrine to prove it). Nishino-shima is also known for horses, which you'll see roaming the hillsides.
The small Chiburi-jima (知夫里島), or 'Chibu', where the local slogan is nonbiri Chiburi (carefree Chiburi), is home to more impressive coastline, featuring the striking Sekiheki, an expanse of rust-coloured cliffs. You can also see stone-wall remains on the island – what is left of a crop-rotation practice that began here in the Middle Ages.
The Akiya coast and Oki-jinja are draws on Nakano-shima (中ノ島), also known locally as Ama.
