We believe that arts and culture, such as music, are essential to a truly rich, full life. From Awaji Island, the mythical birthplace of Japan, we're promoting a new way of life that puts culture at its core.

Our goal is to enrich the lives of musicians and music-lovers alike. Who knows what exciting new encounters may be awaiting you on Awaji Island?

​What's it about?


What is "Music Island"?

What do we do?

The Music Island project gathers musicians from
all over Japan with the aim of promoting regional
revitalisation through music. Our musicians follow a dual-career
path that balances work and musical activities, affording them plentiful
opportunities to collaborate and perform with their fellow members.​

 Due to venue closures and the cancellation of concerts and plays
in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic, many musicians have
been left without opportunities to pursue their activities.

This project acts as a safety net for such musicians. Its
dual-career path offers peace of mind through stable
employment while providing venues for artists to
continue their musical activities. For these musicians,
who bring their dreams and ambitions from
all corners of Japan, we offer a new style of working
and living. This unique environment, situated in the
midst of lush, abundant nature, perfectly places
our members to contribute to the local community.
