Amami-no-sato あまみのさと

Enjoy the tropical atmosphere and gourmet food, where Oshima pongees are woven

Home to the Amami-style Gardens, lush with bougainvillea, Japanese sago palms, and more, visitors can enjoy all the tropical atmosphere that Amami has to offer. A wide variety of facilities are available, including factories and museums dedicated to the clothing called Oshima pongee, hands-on experiences making handkerchiefs using plant-based dyes, weaving and trying on Oshima pongee, and more. Visitors can purchase Oshima pongee products and specialties from Amami, and enjoy seasonal flowers in the “Path of Islands Garden,” which uses stones to recreate the numerous islands that stretch to the south.
At the restaurants, diners can try Amami’s local specialty “chicken rice,” a rice dish topped with a variety of ingredients and smothered in chicken broth, as well as “Akakuma,” a shaved ice dish chock-full of red dragon fruit and available only in the summer.
