Blooming flowers on the coral earth,
Abundant nature and culture

Kikaijima, a rare island with an uplifted coral reef that continues to rise even today.
The coral, which has become the land of the island over the ages, has been watching over the rich nature and human history. The clear sea and the wind passing through the sugarcane fields. Ruins that tell the stories of ancient culture and historic sites that mark human activities. The black sugar shochu of Asahi Shuzo, which cannot be created without both nature and culture, is cradled by the coral earth, awaiting its awakening.
