Tombolo Phenomenon

This area of tidal flats offers a chance to see the Tombolo phenomenon, an occurrence where the islands and shore once separated by sea water become connected via the seabed that appears during low tide.
This spot offers the chance to walk over to the uninhabited Maejima during low tide during a phenomenon similar to that seen at World Heritage Site, Mont Saint-Michel in France.
Once on Maejima you'll find tranquil views out over Mikawa Bay, animals living on the tidal island, cherryblossoms, verdant greenery or autumn foliage depending on the season.
(Currently, crossing over to Maejima is only available during the clam shell gathering season at a fare of 300yen per person.)
