In 2014 a giant salamander emerged from the Kamo River in Japan. Landed appearances of the giant creature are considerably rare due to them making their home underwater and being only active at night. Japanese giant salamanders are the second-largest salamanders on Earth, surpassed only by the closely related Chinese giant salamander.

The island has been administered as part of Nagasaki city since 2005; it had previously been administered by the former town of Takashima.
