Cats and coral welcome you on Fukashima, a small, isolated island off the southernmost point of Oita Prefecture. This “cat paradise” has more cats than human residents. It is also said to be the northernmost place in Japan where you can see coral. The island as a whole has been designated a quasi-national park, and its abundant nature stretches on and on. You can casually admire the coral when snorkeling in the shallows, and you may meet some of the colorful tropical fish that live in the warm ocean current caused by the Kuroshio Current.
