Tatsugo, a town located on the island of Amami Oshima in Kagoshima Prefecture, is one of Japan’s best-kept secrets. The scenery rivals that of Okinawa, but it is nowhere near as touristy. The name Amami incorporates the Chinese character for beautiful, and it definitely lives up to its moniker - the island is a true jewel in the Japanese seas.
One of the 100 hidden towns in Japan chosen for this publication.
