The Explanation of the Tour

The multiple mountains, and the deep and dense forests in the subtropics
The forests in Amami with the poisonous habu snakes going around, and “Kenmun”,
a legendary monster watching over at night.
The world of jet black avoiding the human approaching turns into a paradise for wild creatures to live in.

The world for our unkown creatures now starts
when the stars begin to blink high in the sky.

ーWhat can be found solelyー

here is Amami Oshima that was separated from the continent of Juuracia
by the crustal movements about 2 million years ago.
Making their own evolution, the various unique valuable creatures live here.

“Amami Rabbit” designated as a special natural monument of the country:
a primitive rabbit that inghabits only the main island of Amami Oshima, and Tokunoshima Island.

Among others,
there are the creatures designated as Amami endemic species, natural monuments, or endangered species.

Daytime creatures hide in the forests to rest
at dusk when the sun sets.
The night animals get active.
This is a tour to see the creatures that can be seen only in Amami.

ーThe Safe and Secure Guideー

The fields and forests for night creatures
The world of darkness in the subtropical rainforests protected by the habu snakes and Kenmun.

Our nature guides with sufficient knowledge of all the islands
that lead you into the different spaces under the starry sky,
and which are never stepped into, will escort around.

Why don’t you take a look into the night lives of the creatures???


You do not always find Amami Rabits or other animals since they are wild animals.
Please be aware of any impossibilities to meet them, although we do our best.
