Ôshima hikki is an account of a number of Ryukyuan officials drifting ashore on the island of Ôshima in Tosa province in 1762. The Ryukyuans were led by a Shiohira Peechin, whose exchanges with a Tosa-based Confucian scholar named Tobe Yoshihiro are also recorded in the account.

The volume includes descriptions of China, and roughly 60 ryûka (Ryukyuan poems), along with other content.
