Field Trip - Amami Oshima

POSTED BY DANNY CHOO On Sun 2022/06/26 18:22 JST

Located between Kyushu and Okinawa, Amami Oshima is a 2-hour plane journey from Tokyo. The clear seas and lush forestry wrapped in a subtropical climate make it the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of Tokyo.

We rented a cottage at Amami Oshima for a few days and enjoyed canoeing in a mangrove forest, scuba diving, snorkeling, fishing, and chilling out on the beach - oh, and taking photos of smarties.

The team trip to Hokkaido last month was great, but I think most of us prefer water activities over snow ;-)

Do you prefer Summer or Winter activities? If you are wondering about how temperature affects a Smart Doll, we have done tests where we froze parts in a freezer and boiled them too with no detrimental effects - but I would not try this at home, or your Smartie may do the same to you when you are asleep.

About Amami Oshima per Google.

Amami Ōshima is an island in the Amami archipelago, southwest Japan. On the northeastern peninsula, Tomori Beach has clear waters and offshore reefs. In Amami Park, the Tanaka Isson Memorial Museum displays works by the late painter, who once lived on the island. Farther south, kayaks cross rivers in the Mangrove Primeval Forest. On the island’s southern tip, the Honohoshi Coast has rugged cliffs and giant pebbles.
