About Kohama

Kohama Island is a small island in the Okinawa Prefecture, Japan, one of the Yaeyama Islands. Just a 25 minutes ferry journey from Ishigaki, Kohama is an ideal day trip destination, offering island-hoppers some of the finest views to be found in the Yaeyama archipelago. Kohama shot to fame in Japan in the early 2000s, when Japan's national TV network began filming the popular daytime drama "Chursa San" on the island, although tourist numbers have fallen away in recent years. The sunshine can be intense throughout the year on Kohama so remember to bring water, a hat, and plenty of sun block so you can enjoy a day of walking across this beautiful island.
