Top Attractions

Oki islands are truly a place to get away and enjoy nature. Incredibly peaceful walks in deep forests, or along dramatic coastlines the islands are what many tourists love about the Oki Islands. The plant-life on the islands is of continual interest as climate and isolation from the mainland Japan has fostered unique combinations of warm-temperate and cool-temperate species. There are a number of trails leading to incredible rock formations.
