The Izu Islands consist of more than 100 islands stretching north and south, starting with the northernmost Oshima Island. Each is easily accessible: Oshima Island is a minimum 1 hour and 45 minutes by high-speed jet ferry from Takeshiba Terminal in the Port of Tokyo, and Hachijojima Island is 50 minutes by direct flight from Haneda Airport. A recommended plan for weekend getaways is the large passenger ship, which departs at night and arrives the following morning. The islands featuring pristine nature and a unique ecosystem offer the experience of diving, surfing, swimming, trekking, guided eco-tours, bird watching, fishing, stargazing, and more. After a full day of entertainment, unwind in an open-air hot spring bath with a view of the seas and mountains. A holiday in the islands is active and at times relaxing.
