Six years ago, Oshima-cho in Saikai, Nagasaki Prefecture, spent more than 30 million yen to buy two uninhabited islands in the prefecture with the intention of building a health resort with an emphasis on “island therapy”.

Criticism by local citizens is now growing over such a large expenditure by a small town with nothing to show for it.
