Ojika Island


As a small island off the coast of Nagasaki, Ojika Island offers a quiet island sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of Japan, with wide-open spaces and cool sea breezes. Far away from the country's tourist spots, Ojika Island has no luxury resorts and cannot even offer the immediate ease of one of Japan's ubiquitous convenience stores.

Here, locals live very much in harmony with nature: growing their own food which they trade and share with each other. Come to the island to experience the local culture through their eyes, relearn long-forgotten values, and discover a new side of Japan and yourself.
