There are seven manned islands in Toshima Village, the “longest village in Japan” that stretches 160km north and south between Yakushima and Amami Oshima. They are also called unexplored islands because the ferry often gets canceled in bad weather. Takarajima Island is the southernmost island of them and you can reach it in less than 3 hours from Amami Oshima.
