Kouri Island古宇利島

Island

Kouri Island is located north of the main island of Okinawa, Yagaji Island. It is surrounded by emerald green seas, with a circumference of about eight kilometers. In 2005, the Kouri Bridge opened to connect the island with Yagaji Island, becoming a remote island that could now be reached by car from the main island. There are old houses and fields of sugar cane on the island, and the original Okinawan landscape remains remarkably unchanged. From ancient times, it has been given the names, “Love Island” and “God’s Island”, so there are also a lot of couples who visit this island.

          Let go of your image of a busy, ordered Japan and replace it with crystal-clear waters, white sand beaches, and relaxing folk music: You've arrived in Okinawa. A world away from the high intensity of Tokyo, Okinawans appear to live a laid-back beach life on this paradisiacal tropical island that lies in the middle of the East China Sea almost 1,000 kilometers south of mainland Japan's most southern tip. Home to a spattering of islands, prepare yourself to discover underwater caves, star-shaped sand, and an island culture sometimes unrecognizable from mainland Japan.
