Japan Ozu

Ao Island

A small, tranquil islet in Ozu, Japan, known for its picturesque camellia flowers, connected by a bridge to the city, offering serene nature walks.

Tips from the community

Home to less than twenty elderly people and hundreds upon hundreds of stray cats (you heard me), Aoshima is one of the most unique tourist destinations in Japan. The entire island is overflowing with furry, friendly feline bodies. Take a ferry over and enjoy the feeling of living in bliss for a few hours with no people and only purring kitties for company. Heaven.
