Virtual Event Invite: Another Side of Tokyo, the Tokyo Islands 2021

Explore the island culture of Oshima, Kozushima, and more

Sunday - Dec 19th 2021

Our next virtual tour will take you to the Oshima and Kozushima islands, two of the 11 Tokyo Islands located south of the city. Discover another side of Tokyo, a major contrast to the urban image of one of the world’s largest metropolises. The Tokyo Islands are just a few hours from the city, and after watching the tour you may want to add a quick detour to your next trip to Japan.

Virtual event (YouTube Live):

Available December 19th, 1:00 pm JST

Enjoy the island life in an outdoor experience filled with food, culture, and music. Island locals will show us a few of the top island foods and activities, and even teach us how to dance along the way! Be sure to stay until the end for a special Taiko drum performance from the beach of Kozushima Island.

A few lucky members of our live audience have a chance to win a few prizes made up of local island gift packages filled with handmade sandals, beauty products, snacks, and more. Watch the tour and complete our survey to be eligible.

Attendees are welcome to participate in the tour through a live chat session with our guides to help answer questions along the way!

I've been to Hachijojima twice and loved the island vibe! I'm so curious about my next island hopping trip. Oshima is enticing.
