Climbing to watch Japan’s earliest first sunrise of the year and Japan’s earliest beach opening

Jan. 1, 2019
Hahajima Island, Ogasawara Village

Hahajima Island has Japan’s earliest beach opening, which is accompanied by a number of “Japan’s earliest” events, including climbing to watch Japan’s earliest sunrise of the year that starts before the sunrise, the first swim of the year, and the first beating of Ogasawara drums. This new year event also includes a traditional kagami biraki ceremony (cutting a kagamimochi rice cake), release of green sea turtles, Nan-yo odori dance performance, and tasting of rum, providing a great opportunity for tourists and islanders to have fun together. Come join the event and spend the last year-end and new year holidays of the Heisei period on Hahajima Island!
