Explore an Island Paradise

The largest island in the Satsunan archipelago at the most southerly tip of Japan, Amami Oshima is a relaxing retreat for outdoor enthusiasts who also crave culture. Beautiful beaches, a temperate climate, and breathtaking flora and fauna paired make it a stunning place to spend the day.

Explore the lush, vibrant mangrove forests in a kayak, hike to the Kasarizaki Lighthouse perched on the island’s northern tip, or take in stunning coastal views from Ayamaru Cape Park.

The largest town on the island, Amami City, features a bustling downtown core with an assortment of bars, restaurants, and unique shops. Browse the one-of-a-kind pieces on display at the Tanaka Isson Memorial Art Museum, or explore the Saigo Takamori Museum, named after one of Japan’s founding fathers.

After a day of exploring, savor the regional dish: keihan, or chicken rice. The flavorful toppings and fresh ingredients will refresh and revive you after a day in the sun.

Amami is also renowned for its Oshima Tsumugi silk which has been used for centuries to make gorgeous kimono. Shop for a kimono of your own or learn more about how these magnificent creations were made.
