Far out to sea from the city of Tokyo, over 1,000 kilometers away are Tokyo’s hidden islands called the Ogasawaras. Few tourists have ever heard of them. It’s off the tourist radar. Why? There is no plane ー only a 24 hour ferry ride from Takeshiba Port in the city to Chichijima once a week. When you make a trip to the Ogasawaras (also known as the Bonin Islands) you make a commitment to stay for a while. What you find on the other side is a tropical island paradise that many call the Galapagos of the East. The deep blue water here even has its own name ー Bonin Blue. Most of the islanders can speak native English and this is where Chichijima’s history comes in. Click the video to know about the story
