Welcome to Ogi & Shukunegi
Ogi (小木) is a small village on the southwestern tip of the island and one of the most popular places to visit. The drive along the beautiful rocky shoreline is cathartic if you crave remote destinations, and its splendid isolation is evident in the cultural practices that have changed little in 400 years. Ogi is also the heart of the famed Earth Celebration festival. About 3km west the tiny hamlet of Shukunegi (宿根木), is a rarer jewel – the tiny, gated, traditional fishing village feels like a museum, with its weathered wooden merchant houses, narrow alleyways and stone staircases snaking up the hillside.
