An Amazing Journey to the Secret Island of South Japan

On the southwest of Amami Oshima (the biggest outlying island of Kagoshima Prefecture), there are Yoroshima Island and Hamiya Island. Both have beautiful beach and wonderful ancient forest. Some say that long time ago, the first European who discovered this area gives these islands the name of “Saint Maria Islands”. And there are a lot more to enjoy other than beach and forests. They have beautiful Island-songs, the famous local “Slow-Food” and a very unique culture, language and handmade art works. Come to these two islands, you will feel the healing energy in the secret nature.
