where is tokunoshima?


Tokunoshima is about 450km south of Kagoshima. Although it is a small remote island with a coastline of about 90 km, it is compactly packed with all kinds of attractive points, such as the unique origins of the island, the diverse natural environment, and the history and traditional culture of the islanders who have lived in harmony with nature. Its rich biodiversity and abundance of rare animals and plants have been evaluated as world treasures. Together with Amami Oshima, the northern part of Okinawa Island, and Iriomote Island, it has been registered as the fifth World Natural Heritage Site in Japan.
