Residential AreaAmami Oshima Island
Certificate number0020
NameMasako Uchino
MessageHello, I am Masako Uchido. I was born and brought up in Amami until I left for college. After spending 18 years in Tokyo, I decided to come back my hometown when I realized how special Amami really was with its natural beauty and rich culture. We are surrounded by beautiful sky, deep forest, clean air, and ocean with crystal clear water and coral reef. Flowers are blooming all year round, and you get to taste unique local cuisine and different kinds of fruits. Big cities have their charms, but our island also has a lot to offer. It may be not something big or glittering, but it is quiet and simple. I hope I can help you find those ''small good things'' where time passes slowly. Thank you !
