Hachijo Jima Island Vacations
Tokyo, the national capital, is located about 180 miles (290 kilometers) to the north of Hachijo Jima Island.
Try not to limit yourself to Hachijo Jima Island, because the wider region has a wealth of cultural and scenic attractions which await the savvy traveler.
History enthusiasts will enjoy exploring Kanagawa 's castles, old towns and ruins. Experience a little culture, learning and lore under the bright blue sky at Kanagawa 's fabulous open-air markets, open-air museums and gardens.
Sunbathing and shore fishing are just some of the great options for relaxation in the Kanagawa area. Water-based sports are a much-loved pastime here. Take the opportunity to go fishing or wind surfing; this area has some great areas for it.
Before you disappear on your adventure in Kanagawa, do as savvy travelers do and learn to say a range of relevant phrases in Japanese. A great example of a handy Japanese sentence is "Isshoni odorimasenka?" (Would you like to dance with me?). And, for "Where's the toilet?", you can practice the phrase "Benjo wa doko desu ka?" Don't be shy, just give it a spin!
When the time comes to leave this special place, say goodbye the way Japanese's do, with a heartfelt "Sayōnara."
