Memories from the Road - Life on the Islands
Selected moments from past trips to Japan's smaller islands, exploring their unique cultures and ways of life. Riding a scenic cycling route spanning the Seto Inland Sea, we learn how an island community's hopes for the future rest on the students of their tiny school. On the Oki Islands off Japan's west coast, we stand atop its awesome cliffs before getting hands-on in an island sumo ring, and on southern Miyakojima, we taste the ocean in the local tofu and the island's history in its traditional music.
Stunning views from bridges between the islands
Life in a Shimanami fishing village
Singing the songs of their island forefathers
Hoping we can visit these islands again soon
