Welcome to Tokunoshima
Tokunoshima (徳之島), the second-largest island of the Amami Islands, has some interesting coastal rock formations and a few good beaches. The island is famous for tōgyū (闘牛, bovine sumo), which has been practised on the island for more than 500 years. Attractions include decent diving and snorkelling, and views that occasionally call to mind parts of Hawaii.
On the island's east coast is the main port of Kametoku-kō (亀徳港) and the main town of Kametsu (亀津). Tokunoshima's airport is on its west coast, not far from the secondary port of Hetono (平土野).
