Overview

Oki is an attractive destination for the tourists who are weary of crowds in large cities like Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka. There are slow life, many healing spots, virgin nature and marine activities.

Important

Oki Islands are in the Sea of Japan, 70 - 100km away from the Honshu Main Island. Therefore, the transportation to the islands is not convenient. I recommend you will take the ferry service in the morning (around 8:00AM). The departure ports are Sakaiminato (Tottori-prefecture) or Shichirui (Shimane-prefecture). You may have to stay at the town near the ports for the previous night. If you are staying in Tokyo, you can take a flight from Tokyo to Yonago. If you are staying in Kyoto or Osaka, you should take a bus to Yonago at the previous day. You can enjoy various kinds of activities in the islands , but it's up to your time there. Anyway, I could suggest a best plan to you.
This tour is available from April to October. read more

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I ask you to reserve a hotel or an inn for the previous night?

Of course. Please let me know your request for the type of hotel and room. I will suggest some hotels on your budget.

Is it possible to reserve an inn in Oki Islands in summer high season?

It's all right if your reservation is made by 2 months before. In Oki Islands, there are a few western-style hotels. Most accommodations are ryokan (Japanese-style inn) and minshuku (family-run inn). The inn's fee ordinarily includes breakfast and dinner. Most minshuku are equipped with only Japanese-style restrooms (squat-down type).

Can you stay with us at an inn?

Yes, if your budget permits it. I could stay at a cheaper inn, of course.

Are the transportation fees of child same as adult's? How about activity fees?

Child's fees are cheaper in general. For instance, a round trip ticket of ferry boat to Oki is 5840 JPY (adult) and 2920 JPY (child).
UNESCO Geopark bus tour is 5000 JPY (adult) and 3000 JPY (child).

Can I get back to Tokyo (Kyoto, Osaka) on the 2nd day of the tour?

Yes. I can make an itenerary as such. You could go to other destinations, of course.

Yes! If you need to make changes such as removing or adding someone to your booking or changing the date or time of your tour, contact us by phone or email

I was born and live in Ttottori prefecture which is at the southwestern part of Honshu Island. Our area is rich with virgin nature, purely preserved culture and amiable people.
If you are weary of crowds in big cities like Tokyo, please visit our area to get the slow life and healing. Of course, you can explore various unique activities, too. I worked for a TV station for 37 years and produced more than 1,000 programs dealing with this area.
After retiring, I became a tour guide for foreign tourists. I love history, mountain trekking, igo(board game) and travel. Would you share wonderful experience with me in San-in(Tottori and Shimane) District?
