  1. This was so great to watch, thank you. I will try not to read comments next time though, there are some disturbing people out there who think of others as objects to fill their desires. I hope none of those go there.

  2. This was and is an ACTIVE VOLCANO and can erupt within the next TEN DAYS so TAKE OFF FROM THIS ISLAND if you believe in horrific terrifying nightmares that I have had about this island in the last 20 odd days.

  3. This is a nice video. But its beauty its overstated and exaggerated. Most of the shots are taken via a drone. Second, there is nth much on the island. Imagine yourself in a jungle with a volcano, full of mosquitoes and tropical heat, an island with only 1 pub and convenient stall. In this world, there are other remote places with much more magnificent sights. This place is not suitable for casual foreigners looking to sightsee. I can only imagine you will visit this place if you are a Japanese retiree and want to visit every single part of the country.

  4. Knowing that Tokyo isn't just a city gives perspective though makes this less sensational. Tokyo is essentially a state/prefecture, much like DC is in the U.S. though DC is more a city than Tokyo. The city part (23 wards) is what the world at large is more aware of. However, the non-city part is actually much bigger and there's a lot of rural and mountainous land in the District of Tokyo (that is, outside the 23 wards). As such, it's really not a big deal to have this rural island as part of the District of Tokyo because it has loads of rural land area even in the main land. The interesting part is that it's so small and far from everything else yet it's still populated.

    He touches on it, but the real killer in the summer is the very high humidity combined with the heat. Even modest heat feels like a sauna in Japan because of the high humidity. If you visit Japan in/near the summer after a long time away having forgotten this, you'll be quickly reminded in your first few steps outside. 😛
