View of Kashima Islands from the Roadside Station
Ogashima Island and Megashima Island located in Nago Bay are the large and small island in a line known as Meoto Shima or Married Couple Islands. On Ogashima Island, Kashima Shrine holds Nago Summer Festival, where they conduct the Gojinko parade on Okagen boats out on sea and release lanterns into the water called Goshinto Nagashi. The contrasting silhouette of the islands against the orange-dyed surroundings creates a beautiful and magnificent sunset view.
