Make your way to an expansive resort that combines a gorgeous natural environment with luxurious sophistication

We launched our resort business in 1993 in hopes of creating a "resort city" that exists in harmony with nature. Sprawling across the southern shores of tropical Miyakojima is our Shigira Resort(Nansei Rakuen), a place blessed with an abundance of crystal-clear waters and warm weather year round. We are always improving our accommodations, facilities, and services as we work to maintain an unobtrusive, symbiotic relationship between the lush natural settings and a luxurious environment for our guests.

Miyakojima – a tropical paradise that enraptures every visitor

The first thing that you'll notice about Miyakojima, a coral reef island located 300 km southwest of the main island of Okinawa, is the beautiful ocean. Stretching toward the horizon in gentle, gorgeous blue waves, the waters have become a mecca for divers from around the world. Miyakojima is also famous for its environmental efforts, including wind power installations that take advantage of the climate and terrain conditions. The five surrounding islands – Ikemajima, Irabujima, Shimojishima, Kurimajima, and Ogamijima – also have their own unique features. Ikemajima and Kurimajima are even linked together by a bridge that makes a fine vantage point for phenomenal photo opportunities. All in all, the nature, food, traditions, and people of Miyakojima combine to form an alluring paradise that our guests never forget.

Behold some of the most beautiful ocean waters in the world

The waters surrounding Miyakojima are so unbelievably clear that you don't even have to leave your spot on the beach to see the tropical fish swimming around. The "Miyako blue" hue of the ocean takes on different shades as the day goes by, creating wonderfully expressive seascapes.

Why do Okinawans live such long, full lives? Taste the answer for yourself

Okinawa cuisine developed around the concept that daily diet is just as important to a healthy body as good medicine. Not only is the Okinawan repertoire a font of wisdom about how to find a good dietary balance, but it's also full of tasty dishes that use Okinawan ingredients like goya (bitter melon), vitamin-rich vegetables, "sea grapes" (a form of seaweed), and shima tofu (Okinawan tofu).

Meet the wonderful people of Miyakojima

The people that live on Miyakojima may be a bit on the shy side, but you'll quickly see how warmhearted and kind they are. Travelers, enraptured by the genial people and incredible nature of this sublime paradise, just keep coming back to Miyakojima – and some even make it a new home. As you try your hand at local arts and crafts and experience the surroundings firsthand through a wide variety of different leisure activities, we hope you take the chance to meet and interact with the wonderful people of Miyakojima.
