    Amami Oshima Island, Kagoshima, Japan

    Amami Oshima is the main island of the Amami Islands which are a group of subtropical islands located about 400 km south of Kyushu and about 300 km north of Okinawa.

    The beautiful sea of Amami is known as a fantastic diving spot, blessed with clear blue waters, coral reefs and tropical fish. Mangoes, bananas, passion fruits, guavas and sugar canes are all cultivated on the island.
    70% of the island are covered in rainforests which are infested with the deadly habu snakes (pit viper with cobra venom stronger than Okinawan habu's venom).
