Ogasawara Islands, also known as the Bonin Islands, located 1,000km directly south of Tokyo, Japan. The name "Bonin Islands" comes from the Japanese word bunin (an archaic reading of 無人 mujin), meaning "no people" or "uninhabited". Ogasawara Islands consist of about thirty islands scattered around the Pacific Ocean. This island chain has been isolated for many years, so creatures here have uniquely evolved in the island's special ecosystem. Ogasawara Islands have been inscribed as the Natural World Heritage Site in 2011. Now there are 4 Natural World Heritage sites in Japan in total. Enjoy the deep blue ocean, beautiful stary sky and forests full of life.
