Its nice to know about it because i never travel to it my visits to Japan.Its a lovely Island and its resources are also some better than other islands.One thing about the Iranian Islands all with this,Its not have some arranges of beach resort and have some population around it like the other countries Island.If Iranian government can do this,so the visitors of Iran are increasing in number.
