This island village is unique, being perhaps the most isolated community in Kyushu.
The closest civilization is about an hour away by boat, and no other settlements exist on this small island. Some of the village’s narrow streets are lined with stone walls (ishigaki) and retain at least some of the charm of years gone by. We strolled around the tiny place several times, and bought sodas at a store run by a blind woman who talked nonstop in a dialect that left us completely bewildered.
