Amazing View from Wajii


One of the most scenic points on Ie Island is Wajii, named so for the fresh water spring located at the bottom of a steep, 60-meter cliff.

Long ago, when the people on Ie Island were facing very difficult times due to lack of rainfall, this fresh water spring supported the lives of the islanders.

Even today, without issues of water shortage, the fresh water from Wajii is used to make Iejima Soda, Awamori, and other specialty products, as well as drinking water for the locals.

The surrounding waters are also known to be popular diving and fishing spots.
