Witness the mystical aspect of Toriike Pond, a pool seemingly isolated by jagged rocky outcrops. In fact, subterranean passages connect it to the ocean--but its mythic appearance has inspired many stories, including tales of a mermaid. Wear some sturdy boots for a walk along the surrounding trails, and consider bringing along a picnic to enjoy on the benches overlooking the blue pool. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Toriike Pond by using our Miyakojima road trip site.
