Sometimes referred to as "the island of the God," folklore says that the god Amamikiyo descended on the heavenly Kudakajima Island and introduced multi-grains essential for life. Arriving at the ferry port, you can peruse some gift shops and grab a bite to eat, including the opportunity to sample a local delicacy, the deadly seasnake (hand-captured by the islanders). Consider hiring a bike at the port, a good way to get around the island, but be aware that some areas are sacred and you won't be able to set foot there. Take a map from the ferry to identify the forbidden areas. Plan my Nanjo trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Kudakajima Island Reviews

Old cars, washing machine, refrigerators, plastic waist and much more hiding in the nature. This little Island should be cleaned up and all rubbish should shipped bag to the main island. Look on... more »
It’s a small beautiful island to take a little ferry from Okinawa island I just had like 4 hours to stay there and rented a bicycle to go around whole island.
Trash, plastic waist everywhere!!!
