Ideally located near Hishiura port, Marine Port Hotel Ama is a great starting point to explore Ama Town. From April to October, you can take the Amanbow underwater viewing boat to see the variety of marine life around the island without getting wet. A special night cruise allows you to see the mysterious luminous plankton. The picturesque Akiya Coast is a taxi ride away. Plan to have lunch at Oki Gyuten, the restaurant a short walk away from the hotel that dishes up Oki beef. Avail of the BBQ dinner package with your accommodation and grill your dinner as you watch the sunset in a cozy Scandinavian style BBQ house. Though rooms have a private shower, the public bath is worth checking out. Watch the ferries go by as you relax in the hotel's natural hot spring.
A three-minute walk from Hishiura Port, Ama Town. In case of bad weather, pick-up is available (arrangements need to be made ahead of time).

For Sherilyn Siy, Asia is home. Born in Hong Kong, Sherilyn spent time in the Philippines, China, and now lives in Japan. She speaks English, Filipino, Chinese (or putonghua), and Hokkien, her family's local dialect. Running is one of her favorite ways to explore Japan. She proudly finished the 2015 Tokyo Marathon -- her first ever full marathon -- in 4 hours and 37 minutes. She was absolutely psyched when she got selected again to run the new Tokyo Marathon route in 2018. She hopes to complete other races in Japan.
