Welcome to Ōsumi Islands

Neighbouring Tanegashima's claim to fame is as the home of Japan's space program, but despite being a popular surfing destination for domestic surfers, the island sees relatively few foreign travellers.

Of the Mishima-mura group, the most commonly visited island is tiny Iō-jima, a gem of a volcanic island with natural onsen (hot springs).
