Ou Island

奥武島 Ou Island

Ou Island has a perimeter of only two kilometers, with a drive around the whole island taking only about five minutes. This small island becomes full of excitement during the haaree boat races, when rowers jump off of a bridge into the water to climb into their sabani and start rowing. Numerous small shops at the base of the bridge sell seafood and vegetable tempura at reasonable prices (about ¥60 per piece), a treat for locals and tourists alike during their visit to the island.
