It’s situated 450 miles (724 kilometers) away from Hiroshima and about 400 miles (644 kilometers) from Jeju Island, South Korea.
When you need a little time out, visit Kuroshio No Mori Mangrove Park, a place where visitors can enjoy some time outdoors. Nature lovers enjoy this peaceful space for the relaxed atmosphere and pretty garden beds and trees.
You can never know what makes a place tick until you know its story; thankfully Amami has preserved the Tanaka Isson Historic House, one of the area’s most important history buildings and sites. Read up about the site in your guide book, get photographs and deepen your knowledge of local history.
When you are in Amami check out Ohama Seaside Park, a popular destination for both locals and tourists. On a fine day, this is the place to come to enjoy the sunshine, enjoy long walks and splash in the shallows. This beach is a calming stretch of coastline and well worth a trip.
It doesn't matter how many fabulous sights you’ve managed to squeeze into your schedule, no vacation in Amami is complete without paying a visit to the Arimori Shrine.
