The Explanation of the Tour

The True Face of Southern Amami Oshima

Amami Oshima is an island full of rains, greenery and mountains.
The annual rainfall is about 3,000 mm, which is about twice as much as in Tokyo or Oosaka.

The rains falling over the surrounding mountain ranges will make streams,
carve deep valleys, make waterfalls on the cliffs,
change wet subtropical forests into mysterious deep green forests, and reach the ocean of blue coral reefs.

Many Healing Falls

The appearance of the old with the inhabition of habu snakes,demon and guardian of the forest,
still remains in the deep and rugged hardwood forests with ferns and Cyathea Spinulosa.
This will prevent your approaches there.

The falls embraced in the deep misterious forests continuously flow on and on unnoticed.
There are about thirty falls with names, waterfalls without names, phantom falls and uncountable unknown falls.

The dignyfying falls expecting your visits, and the falls loitering to avoid the public eye and embarrassment
The falls to encourage you, the falls to refresh you, the falls to pacify and soothe you,
and the falls with fairy signs

The winds blowing gently over the falls invite you to the ancient times. Are they the breaths of God?
The hours to pacify you will flow.

Let’s try to find a power spot only for you in the mystic forests on this enchanted Island.
