Located 1,000 km south of Tokyo, the Ogasawara Islands consist of over 30 islands floating in the Pacific Ocean. About 2,000 people live in the Chichijima Island, and about 500 people live in the Hahajima Island. However, except for these islands, most islands are uninhabited.
The Ogasawara Islands were registered as the World Natural Heritage site in June 2011. The islands have a lot of endemic plants in the forest as well as abundant nature that endemic insects and land snails inhabit. The Ogasawara Islands have one of the clearest seas in the world, and you can enjoy marine sports such as diving, snorkeling, swimming with dolphins, whale watching, fishing, kayaking and surfing in the deep blue ocean called "Bonin Blue".
You will also be blown away by the magnificent nature registered as a world heritage site, through trekking in the forest where primary forest under subtropical climate remains, and observing nocturnal creatures such as green glowing mushrooms called "Green Pepe" and Bonin fruit bats unique to Ogasawara under a night sky which is the best starry sky in Japan.
