Just outside of a friendly hostel called Okushiri Guesthouse Imacoco spans the Sea of Japan, and what locals like to call “Okushiri Blue.” For travelers that want more than just a simple sightseeing trip to this remote western island, kayaking tours are readily available through these beautiful blue waters. The SUP・Kayak Beginner Experience is only 4,000 yen per hour, the SUP・Kayak Majestic-View Tour is 11,000 yen for three hours, and the SUP・Kayak Cave Kamui Tour is 11,000 yen for three hours. Join in on one of these kayak tours and glide through the majestic waves. When your body gets worn out from kayaking, don’t forget to take a dip in the nearby hot spring, only a short two-minute walk from the guesthouse. At the end of your day, you’re sure to get a big, warm welcome from the guesthouse’s owner.
