"Tastes of JAPAN by ANA" is a regional vitalization project that collaborates with the different prefectures in Japan to present the Land of the Rising Sun in all of its diverse glory.
Land of the legendary Urashima Taro is all around Shonai Peninsula, Mitoyo City. One of them is Mount Shiude.
The mountain is known from a part of the legend where the protagonist, Urashima Taro, opens a treasure box and white smoke comes out and turns into a purple cloud over the mountain. You can also see cherry blossoms and hydrangeas alongside the scenery of the Seto Inland Sea.
