Tsuken Island

At a glance

Tsuken Island is situated 5 km offshore from the Katsuren peninsula of Central Okinawa. The island is also known as “Carrot Island” because 20 percent of the carrots grown in Okinawa are harvested here. Tsuken Island’s carrots are known for their sweet flavor and superior quality and taste. Why not try one for yourself?

The island is surrounded by sandy beaches, making it a popular summer time picnic and barbeque spot for families from the main island of Okinawa. Tourism spots can be reached on foot, but you may want to consider renting a bicycle if only staying for the day. Also, be on the lookout for the island’s carrot-shaped scenic lookout.

If visiting during the winter time, be sure to buy a boxed lunch or prepared foods before you get to the Port of Heshikiya, since no restaurants are open during this time. Shops on the island do sell ramen noodles, canned foods and other dried goods. Many local specialty items can also be purchased at the Port of Heshikiya.
