Hateruma Island
Destination Guide

Hateruma Island is Japan’s southernmost inhabited island. At night, the sky above the island shines bright with all the stars in the sky like a natural planetarium, where you will be able to enjoy a spectacular view of 84 out of the 88 constellations. Nishihama Beach, once selected as the most beautiful beach in Japan, also makes for an extraordinarily relaxing and fulfilling experience to behold.
