Happy New Year 2024!

Happy New Year!
I wish you all a wonderful year ahead.

2023 was a year filled with valuable lessons for me, especially in embarking on entrepreneurship. I appreciate the support and encouragement from many individuals.

As I look forward to 2024, it is going to be another year of challenges. I plan to improve existing tours and develop new tours, including Kinsakubaru National Forest tour, snorkeling tour, trekking tour, and new cultural experiences. When I think back inquiries received in 2023, I’ve got many requests for Kinsakubaru and snorkeling tour. For trekking, I am working on a winter-exclusive tour to explore deep into the mountains and see giant fig tree. The current challenge of cultural experiences, I plan to expand the offerings more of Amami’s traditional and culinary culture to international tourists. Currently, interpretative guide includes mud-dyeing experiences and tours of brown sugar shochu distilleries.

I look forward to cooperating with everyone to make Amami Oshima an even more fascinating destination this year.

Wishing you a joyful New Year!
