Ujijihama (ウジジ浜)

Okinoerabujima Island

Amami Area Nature, Seasonal Flowers and Scenic Spots

Carved out by the waves, these unusual limestone shapes resemble natural works of art. From certain angles, they even look like animals or plants. They’re particularly spectacular when set against the rising sun. In 1890, a Canadian sailboat ran into a typhoon and was disastrously shipwrecked in the waters off Ujijihama. Its crew, however, were rescued by local islanders and nursed back to health before returning safely to Canada. There is a sailboat-shaped monument at Ujijihama commemorating this event.
