Stargazing on the sandy beaches


Known as a prominent stargazing site, look up to see the hundreds of stars that fill the sky in the remote islands of Tokashiki. With very few buildings that go in the way of your stargazing experience, Tokashiki creates a perfect environment to melt into the heavenly night sky. In the summer, the starry sky fills with a beautiful panorama of the glittering stars, which includes Milky Way constellations like Scorpius, the Big Dipper, and the North Star. The island also offers excellent sandy beaches, including Aharen Beach, where you can lay down as you enjoy the sounds of the ocean.
