2018.1.15|

Not many people know that the Tokyo Islands are designated a national park.

And also it is the Ogasawara Islands that in 2011 became part of UNESCO’s World Natural Heritage Sites’ list. Although there are some areas with settlements, other parts of the islands are inside the national park and their nature preserves designation has kept development limited. A visit to the unique landforms that volcanic activity has created and seeing the magnificent island seascapes is an unforgettable experience.
