The following sequence is of 4 photographs taken on
the southern Japanese island of Amami. 
It's a relatively small island, traditional, and "off the beaten path", 
not visited by many 
(either Japanese from elsewhere in Japan, or by foreigners).
But, there have been about 15 FONT tours to Amami, 
as on the island there are some specialty birds, 
such as the Lidth's Jay and the Amami Woodcock, 
both endemic to the southern islands of Japan. 

Beautiful Amami scenery:
