Description:

Amami Oshima is the largest island in the Satsunan island chain that runs between Kyushu and Okinawa and lies about 150nm northeast of Okinawa.

It is a particularly beautiful island with white sand beaches and clear, warm waters ideal for swimming during the summer months.

Whale watching to see humpback whales has become a featured attraction in winter in recent years.

Amami Oshima is home to several rare or endangered endemic animals, including the Amami rabbit and the Lidth’s jay, both of which are now found only in Amami Oshima and Tokunoshima. The Amami rabbit is sometimes called a living fossil because it represents an ancient Asian lineage that has elsewhere disappeared.
