A Japanese island known for its performing arts is the focus of today's Geo Quiz.
We're looking for the sixth-largest island of Japan. It's on the western side of the big island of Honshu.
The island we want you to name is popular with tourists. They like to attend the many arts festivals held by local villages.
Those festivals earned the place the nickname of "island of the performing arts."
Today, artists and performers choose to live there. But centuries ago, this wasn't the case.
"This island has a history of exile. In the past many important intellectuals, politicians, people who fought with the main government of Japan had been banished to that island."
