With a 12 kilometers circumference, Miyagi Island is connected to the main island by a bridge to the reclaimed land of Henza Island and another bridge to the Katsuren Peninsula.
Miyagi Island is also known as “Takahanari” (“high above”), because it is higher than the row of adjacent islands, making it possible to look out over Henza Island and the Yokatsu (or Katsuren) Peninsula from 121 meters above.
