Iki island (Nagasaki Prefecture) is located in the Korea Strait between Kyushu and Korea. This hilly island is a pivotal location in the history of Japan’s trade with the rest of Asia, and has long been a stop-off point for merchants, with a vibrant community existing here for at least 2,000 years.
The influence of Chinese and Korean culture can still be seen today. The perimeter of this beautiful, green island is dotted with small towns and beautiful beaches, which are popular in the summer months with marine sports enthusiasts.
One of the 100 hidden towns in Japan chosen for this publication.
