Aogashima Island is a solitary island in the distant ocean, surrounded by sheer cliffs with heights of 50 to 200 meters. It is especially hard to access this island even among the Tokyo’s islands. Once you set foot on it, you will be overwhelmed by the vast and mystical landscape. At night, you can see a stadium of stars! “Starry Sky Coliseum,” a name given to the area at the floor of the double calderas, is a great place to enjoy the breathtaking Milky Way. For your trip to enjoy a mesmerizing night sky, visit Aogashima Island, an ark to take you to the stars.
