Japan has about 6,800 islands that are larger than 100 meters in circumference. More than 500 of them are classified as "remote border islands." On this episode of Journeys in Japan, we revisit three of them — the Oki Islands, Iki, and Tsushima — to explore their culture, traditions and distinctive history on Japan's frontline.
