Greetings, this is Nazrul from the Hokkaido Government Representative Office.
This week we are introducing Okushiri, known as a town of seafood and pure bliss floating in the transparent blue sea, southwest of mainland Hokkaido.
The town of Okushiri is rich in marine products such as sea urchin and abalone, both of which are unique to the remote island, and visitors can even catch and enjoy their own abalone on the spot as an experience.
Moreover, visitors can take part in a winery tour where they can taste and sample grapes grown locally in Okushiri Island at ‘Okushiri Winery’, the first winery on an island in Japan. And in the blue waters off of Okushiri island, various aquatic sports can also be enjoyed at the beach in the summer as well as diving which is proving to be very popular.
Come visit the quaint island of Okushiri, and enjoy an unforgettable respite from your everyday life!
