The best nature oases around the capital

While Tokyo is often seen as a busy and bustling megacity, its lesser-known maritime territory could not be any more different. Often overlooked by foreign travelers, Tokyo's islands are a green haven waiting to be discovered. From wild nature, to adventure sports, history and culture, discover Tokyo as you never imagined!

The Islands of Tokyo

 

Board a ferry at Takeshiba sanbashi and discover an entirely new Tokyo, just 1 hour and 45 minutes away! From there, discover the 11 main islands of Tokyo: the Izu islands (Oshima, Toshima, Niijima, Shikinejima, Kozushima, Miyakejima, Mikurashima, Hachijojima, Aogashima), and the two Ogasawara islands (Chichijima and Hahajima). They enjoy a summer climate all year round and have very diverse landscapes: dormant volcanoes, lush forests, clear waters, waterfalls and rapids.

A wide variety of activities await. When it comes to the sea, you can snorkel near the coral reefs, swim with dolphins, surf or try many other water sports. The white sandy beaches are perfect for enjoying the good weather and family activities.
