Miyakejima Island, situated 180 kilometers south of central Tokyo, enjoys a balmy climate year round. The entire island is an active volcano that erupts at roughly 20-year intervals. The eruption of Mt. Oyama in 2000 caused the summit crater to collapse and form a new caldera some 450 meters deep. Visitors are invited to take in the vista of the volcanic island—it’s reminiscent of a nature-made museum—and feel the breath of Mother Earth.
