Located around 200km south of Tokyo, the volcanic Japanese Island of Mikurajima lies in the Pacific Ocean. Mikurajima belongs to the Izu Islands, which are connected by the ferry company, Tokai Kisen, which operates around the various ports.
The primary reason most come to visit the island of Mikurajima is to experience the incredible opportunity to swim with dolphins. Regarded by some as one of the best places on the planet to swim with dolphins, Mikurajima is a must visit whilst in any region of Japan. The combination of a tranquil environment with clear skies makes it an unforgettable experience.
Away from the dolphins, Mikurajima has plenty to offer those who prefer to spend their time on land. There are copious mountains and hills which are ideal for embarking on a hike in the early hours of the morning, especially considering the stunning scenery engulfing the island. Due to the relatively few visitors, Mikurajima has remained largely untouched by tourism, making it one of the cleaner and quieter islands belonging to Japan.
The island is easily covered by foot, and all the accommodation will be within comfortable walking distance of the ferry terminal.
