The Oki Islands are a small archipelago located about 60 kilometers off the coast of Shimane Prefecture. Among them is the island of Nakanoshima, where in Ama Town, you can experience exclusive, comfort-filled camping with panoramic sea views at Tadayoi Ama Glamping. In Japanese, tadayoi means “floating,” and as the name suggests, during your stay here, you will feel like you are floating on the sea, at one with the waves.

Bookings are limited to only seven groups per day, so you will have the peaceful, wild scenery of the Oki Islands UNESCO Global Geopark all to yourself.

Enjoy local flavors along with the view. During the spring and summer, you can BBQ delights from the Oki Islands, such as rock oysters, turban shells, Oki beef, and locally-grown rice. In the cooler autumn and winter, a nabe hotpot featuring the prized local beef and oysters is just the thing to warm you up.

Get out into the calm sea with outdoor activities, such as SUP (stand-up paddleboarding)  or kayaking in clear kayaks, to see the diverse sea life that lives in this protected habitat.

Afterwards, warm up in a tent sauna which uses spicebush tea, a local specialty.
