Within the boundaries of the municipality (but some distance from its main built-up areas) lies the island of Kōjima, known for the field studies site of the Primate Research Institute, where studies on wild-living Japanese macaque monkeys are carried out.
Koigaura is a surfing spot in Kushima. Every year, in the summer, surfers from all over the country visit this beautiful place.
