A remote island located in the Seto Inland Sea. Since ancient times, Seto Inland Sea has been blessed with abundant food resources and dubbed “miketsukuni”, meaning a country offering food to the imperial family. The incense industry (thriving on Awaji’s climate) expanded here as a side job for fishermen during the rough winter season, especially after the war, where there was an increase in demand. Awaji is also known for roof tiles and onions.
