If you have some time to spare, follow the favorite destination of Tokyoites, where they take a ferry or a plane to visit the string of islands stretching south of the Japanese capital whether they be walkers, divers or bathers, all seeking the tranquility of its small islands.
There are therefore multiple islands and volcanic islets notably Izu and Ogasawara (Oshima, Toshima, Niijima, Shikinejima, Kozushima, Miyakejima, Mikurajima, Hachijojima, Aogashima, Chichijima, Hahajima), which are spread out off Tokyo. The distance separating them from the bustle of the city center, on which they administratively depend, ranges from a few hours to half a day of navigation.
Our recommendations for the first visit being the following 3 islands.
, the "big island", is located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean to the east of the Izu peninsula but is nevertheless, administratively, part of the city of Tokyo! It can be reached by plane, but most often by hydrofoil boat in two hours from Tokyo.
