Mainland Japan is always fun, but why not take yourself and 30 of your closest friends to your own private Japanese island? No, this isn’t a drill – you can Airbnb it!
The slice of heaven in question is called Tajima and it’s located in Omura Bay off the coast of Nagasaki, Japan. The owner of the island says it was his dream to create a utopia of sorts, all in ode to Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn.
There’s a lot to do on the 3km² island. You can check out the light house, have a ride on the flying fox, stay warm next to the many fireplaces, and even a partake in a tree-climbing session up to the bamboo tree house which the listing labels “Tarzan’s House”.
You’ll also be able to walk along the rice paddies and feed the duck farms on the island. There are plum trees, wild strawberries and chestnuts to be foraged, and seafood to be caught. Once nightfall hits, you can view the stars under a clear sky from the open-air bathtub. If that’s not enough, there are also some island Shiba Inu dogs to play with, because life on this island is magical.
Be sure to check out the super kawaii map of the island below.
It’ll set you back $5326AUD per night but if you ask us, it’s worth every penny. Check out the listing here.[qantas_widget code=HND]Check out Qantas flights to Japan.[/qantas_widget]
