Angel Road is in reality a sandbar that connects three tiny islands with Shodoshima. During low tide visitors can walk along the sandbar. Local lore has it that couples who cross the sandbar hand in hand will find happiness together. In this vein, some couples write their romantic wishes on small wooden ema plaques and hang them onto a tree branch for the wishes to become true. Most people just stroll around the sandbar, or wait for the sun to go down as it is a favorite sunset viewing spot on the island of Shodoshima.
