Create an itinerary including Sugar Road
Explore the Japanese countryside and experience rural life as you travel down Sugar Road. Located on the eastern side of the island, the road got its name for sugar plantations, which can be found either side of the attraction and are considered one of the most important parts of the island's economy. This piece of tarmac remains one of the island's main attractions and often features in popular Japanese TV drama Churusan, from which it gained its popularity. Keep an eye out for local farm animals hanging around as you travel along the road. PutSugar Road into our Kohama-jima driving holiday app and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Its a relaxing ride and you get to see lots of local flora and fauna. But rent an electric bike or motorcycle as there are some gentle but long inclines that could be murder on the thighs

  • The place is very quiet. No sugar cane along the side of the road anymore. It's just splattering of cattle farms now. The tour guide spoke in Japanese throughout so we have no idea what is going on...
