[Tohoku Destination Campaign (DC) Special Event] Experience Yamada-style camping and eating on Oranda Island, an uninhabited island in Sanriku

Enjoy Yamada's seafood on an uninhabited island with commemorative photography taken by drone!

Yamada Bay is so calm that it is called the Lake Towada of the ocean, which is rare for the Sanriku coast. Within the round bay, there are countless rafts for aquaculture as well as the uninhabited islands known as Oranda Island and Kojima Island. In particular, the waters around Oranda Island are very shallow and clear, and you can enjoy emerald green waters truly like those of a tropical resort. On this island, we will enjoy a meal with a main dish of Yamadakko outdoor rice and baked dishes such as oysters. Also, as a special event for the Tohoku DC, we will take commemorative photos from above the island with a drone. The photos will be presented to the guests at a later date. 

*This is a product to be implemented from June 2021.

Notes
Oranda Island was named because the Dutch ship Breskens dropped anchor in the area in 1643 to replenish its food and water (Oranda is the Japanese pronunciation of Holland). With a circumference of about 900 meters and an area of 26,960 square meters, Oranda Island is the only uninhabited island with a swimming beach in Tohoku
