Noho Island

At a glance

Noho Island is located about 40 km to the north of the main island of Okinawa and has been connected to Iheya Island since 1979 when the Noho Ohashi Bridge first opened. The island has one small village and its main industry is sugar cane cultivation. Today, Noho Island gets its water supply from Iheya Island because it lacks water resources. Many of its wells have a high salt content, which made life here in the past very difficult. Recently, one of the largest table coral communities in all of Okinawa Prefecture was discovered to the west of island, which has made diving quite a popular activity as of late. You can walk around Noho Island in about an hour, but you may want to rent a car or motorcycle if you want to see both Noho and Iheya islands together. The ferry to Izena Island leaves from the island's Port of Noho.
