Tsushima is known for the Iwamatsu River and the festival they have each year where people eat tiny, live fish.

Tsushima residents are also known for pearl farming and fish farming, as well as being part of the prefecture's mikan growing industry.

Nanryakuen Park is a beautiful place to go for a walk when you're there. There's also a children's amusement area called Playland across the street.
