Trekking Tour in Kakeroma island!
“Come on ! Let’s put down our smartphones and tablets in the back of the bags and take a deep breath !
It is the start of the forest-ocean therapy and Digital Detox Tour.
There is not a big town, nor a large supermarket in Kakeroma.
Nothing here !
That is why it is a popular and mysterious island, Kakeroma island !
Why do the people continue living in Kakero which does not have anything,
in the time when anything is easy and ready to get in hand ?
The slow trekking tour and the nature in Kakeroma island will be an undoubtful answer.
The mountains, the low mountains with severe undulations, occupy 95% of the land
which the hub snakes inhabit as well as Ooshima Main Island.
What is much more spreading is an ocean once you cross beyond the pass,
paying attention to the rare animals in Kakeroma Amami and speaking of Galapagos in the Orient.
The trekking course combined with the beaches will raise much of new energy and pleasant tiredness
from the bottom of your heart, when the sea breeze is blowing on the coral
beaches and surrounded by the breath of trees which grow densely in the subtropical forests.
The changes of season will make the plants and animals different,
and the changes of weather will also make the ocean appear different !
At the final destination, the splendid scenery overlooking the horizon of the Pacific Ocean is awaiting you.
Walking in the forests, listening to the birds’ chirping
and strolling on the beaches with the exposure to the sea-breeze, climbing the hills while looking at the ocean
are a short trip to the ultimate space-time on the there-is-nothing island.
After exchanging one-word, two-word greetings with the elders resting under the shadows of the trees on the beach,
let’s trail into the solitary island.
