AMA ISLAND

Entry Source: The James Bond Movie Encyclopedia by Steven Jay Rubin


Secluded Japanese island that is home to a community of fishermen and beautiful pearl divers known as ama girls in You Only Live Twice. Disguised as a Japanese fisherman, and determined to find a secret SPECTRE rocket base, Bond (Sean Connery) travels to the island, where he “marries” Kissy (Mie Hama), a stunningly beautiful ama diver who is actually a top agent of Japanese Secret Service chief Tiger Tanaka (Tetsuro Tamba). Undercover as fisherman and pearl diver, Bond and Kissy eventually find their way through the Rosaki Cave and onto the extinct volcano that Blofeld (Donald Pleasence) uses to disguise his hidden rocket installation.
