Walking on Drift Ice
Sunmesse Nichinan is located on a small hill overlooking the Nichinan coastline. This location's symbols are actually elaborate reproductions of Moai statues from Easter Island! With their backs to the horizon, these seven dramatic Moai statues are each around 5.5 m tall. The deep-blue water of the Nichinan coast together with the mystical statues make this area a must-see destination. Inside the spacious grounds there are many things to see, including an exhibition on rare insects of the world and information panels authorized by UNESCO. You can also relax at the shops and restaurants.
