The island in Tokyo

Hi! I’m Haruna, one of the guides of TGCT.

I love cycling and often take a trip with my bike. I went Hachijyojima last week before.

Hachijyojima is a small, semitropic island which locates 290km southward Tokyo, but actually it’s a part of Tokyo Metropolis.

It takes only 50 min. flight from Haneda airport. So, during holidays, the island is alive with lots of divers who live in Kanto area.

I enjoyed diving too. You may see not only rare fish but also seaturtles and dolphins there!

Not only diving, there are other fascinates such as fishing, hiking, Onsen(hot spring), fresh fish and so on.
Hachijyojima isn’t a famous resort,  but I think it’s worth visiting.

By the way, we’ll have 2 guests this weekend. I hope it’ll be a fine day!
