Kaiun Sake Brewery


The brown sugar shochu "Rento" is the representative product of Kaiun Sake Brewery. It is made by mixing brown sugar made from sugar cane and rice malt and fermenting them. Some people think it is a sweet liquor from the ingredients. However, it is a distilled sake that does not contain any sugar and is a crisp, dry sake. It still retains the sweet aroma and flavor of brown sugar. During the factory tour, you can try tasting shochu, and depending on the season, you can also enjoy cutting sugar cane, tasting millet juice and brown sugar.

Sights Information

Kinsakubaru Primeval Forest

Kinsakubaru is a primeval forest that is home to many species of flora and fauna that are unique to Amami Oshima. Overhanging trees allow in slivers of sunlight, creating a mystical atmosphere that feels as though you have stepped inside a fantasy story. Visitors must be accompanied by a certified guide, but this is actually for the best, as they can explain in depth all the wonders and hidden areas that would otherwise be lost on those who are unaware of their existences.

Kakeroma Island

It is reached by a 20-minute boat ride from Koniya Port at the southern tip of Amami Oshima Island. Recommended if you want to feel even more at one with the sea and nature! There are no big resort hotels or supermarkets, but pensions and guest houses. The blue ocean where you can swim like at Plavate Beach, and the villages with coral stone walls still retain the appearance of the islands from long ago.

Heart Rock

It is a heart-shaped tide pool that can be seen only at low tide. It is located about 15 minutes drive from Amami Airport. The beautiful heart can be seen for about an hour before and after the low tide. It is rocky and slippery, so please be careful.


You can also cross to the island by boat from the port in downtown Kagoshima! The boat departs from Kagoshima City in the evening and arrives at Amami Oshima Island in the early morning. The boat trip is also recommended for those who want to spend a relaxing time gazing at the stars above the sea and the sunrise at dawn.


Habu, also known as poisonous snakes and said to be more numerous than the population of Amami, are not likely to be encountered during normal sightseeing, but they are said to be nocturnal and often appear after rain, so be careful! You can also buy souvenirs such as hub liquor and accessories made from hub skins and bones.
