Our Collection

Kojima, located off the shore of the city of Kushima in Miyazaki Prefecture, is also know as "monkey island." The name is derived from its treasured inhabitants, the Japanese macaques. The monkeys became famous after scientists discovered that they were washing sweet potatoes in the water before eating them.
