Niijima, located approximately 160 kilometers from Tokyo, is a long island measuring some 3 kilometers east to west and 11.5 kilometers north to south. The mecca for surfers is known as a swimming destination in summer, but also offers hot springs and outdoor activities such as camping—tours of historic spots and cycling are also recommended—from spring to autumn. The island is famous for producing salted, dried, and fermented fish with a distinct odor, called kusaya.
