Through this space, while experiencing the rich nature of the local area, we encourage encounters and exchanges with the islanders, and by having them experience life on the island in a real way, we hope that people outside the area will be able to enjoy the “Ogijima Island”. , we aim to create and expand the “related population” and solve various problems facing remote island areas such as “Ogijima”.
