What is Tobishima Life?
This is an advice portal for anyone thinking of moving to the Tobishima Kaido in the Seto Inland Sea. All our advisors live and work on the islands and moved here within the last six years.
Using our local knowledge and network of contacts within the community, we can provide you with valuable advice about relocating or starting new projects in this beautiful corner of Japan.
What is the Tobishima Kaido?
The Tobishima Kaido is a set of seven islands in the Seto Inland Sea connected to mainland Hiroshima by seven bridges. The final island on the Tobishima Kaido chain, Okamura, lies within Ehime Prefecture. Okamura has good ferry access to Shikoku and the Shimanami Kaido to the east.
The Tobishima Kaido's warm climate and terraced fields are perfectly suited for growing citrus. The aging farmers still cultivate the hillsides and produce some of the finest citrus in Japan.
The infrastructure and well-maintained facilities on the islands can help turn innovative ideas into reality. Residents have privileged access to certified food processing facilities, modern meeting rooms, concert halls, theaters (traditional and modern), sports grounds and gymnasiums. A host of local businesses and facilities also cater to a burgeoning tourist trade.
