Guides’ philosophy

Although Amami Oshima still exists ancient creatures and is an extremely valuable island, now extinction of living things is exposed to dangerous due to various land development. Our tour never threatens wildlife. We organize a tour to introduce special living creatures of Amami Oshima and appeal the importance of nature.

Not only living things but also artifacts in the mountains and nature destroyed by human hands are the targets to observe. Hopefully you will join our tour while considering current situation of Amami-Oshima.The more people participating in the tour, the more the momentum of voice that protects Amami Oshima's nature will increase.
