I was born and raised on Amami Island. I have been interested in English since I was a little child. When I was 26 years old, I moved to Vancouver, Canada and lived there for a year. I love my island and would like to introduce you to Amami, which is one of the most interesting places to visit. We have absolutely beautiful beaches, coral reefs, mangrove forests, rainforests, endemic species, endangered species and more!

I'm looking forward to seeing you on this beautiful island!
