Surrounded by sea, Japan is blessed with some magnificent coastlines. The scenery of the beautiful sea is rich in variation, from the ice floe-locked coast of the Hokkaido region to the coast of Okinawa, surrounded by coral reefs. Its islands, too, come in a wide variety, such as the tiny islets in Setonaikai (Inland Sea of Seto), Sadogashima Island and the Okinoshima Islands which are surrounded by rough sea, as well as the Ogasawara Islands which consist of small islands scattered over the Pacific Ocean.
