Etajima is a city made up of several islands in Hiroshima Bay. With a warm climate, the sea and mountains provide an abundance of delicious food, and there is plenty to see and do all year round.
Each side of the island offers a different view, and the sunset from Hodaiyama (the site of an old gun battery) is particularly spectacular.
Visitors can also enjoy sea kayaking and SUP, or take a bike ride and lap up the beautiful views.
