Izena Island

At a glance

Izena Island is located in the East China Sea about 27 km northwest of Nakijin Village on the main island of Okinawa. The island does not have any habu pit vipers, unlike most other parts of the prefecture. Izena Island is known as the birthplace of Sho En, a king of the Ryukyu Kingdom and founder of the Second Sho Dynasty, and has many historical landmarks linked to the king. The center of the island has a range of mountains rising to 130 meters elevation that form a watershed divide.

The island has many agricultural fields after having been developed as a purely farming village. The main crops include sugar cane and rice, while mozuku (an edible seaweed) aquaculture is also widely practiced here. The island has many steep hills, so a rental motorcycle is a must for getting around. The island’s coastline is lined with Ryukyu pine, making for unique and awe-inspiring views. Visitors can also enjoy a stroll in the island’s village of traditional Ryukyu homes.

The island is actively pursuing a project to increase the number of tourist accommodations at guest houses and traditional Okinawan houses, which provides a great opportunity for visitors to meet locals and learn about the island.
