A little off the beaten path but, well worth the drive to visit, I've gone to Kouri-jima a few times over the past few months. Away from the hustle and bustle ofn the main island of Okinawa, it's easy to access by bridge and lots cheaper than depending on a ferry. There are historical and religious sites to see and plenty of nature to observe. I found the staff in the community center to be very helpful and they allowed me to take photos of the artworks hanging on the walls. Anyone exploring the side roads and rocky beaches should wear sturdy shoes, as there are some slippery trails and sharp, coral cliffs along parts of the shore. A great place with lots of scenery, a camera is recommended. It's easy to spend a half day, or more visiting this small island. Most of the places for food or refreshments are close to the causeway, as you enter the island so, it's best to stock up there, as you won't find any convenience stores as you travel other places around the island.
