The conical island looks like a mountain floating in the sea

Camellias cover some 80% of the island

A school of 16 dolphins inhabit the waters

Toshima-mura Village comprises the island, a 2-hour 45-minute ride by jet ferry from Tokyo’s Takeshiba Terminal. Japan’s number-one producer of camellia oil is also notable for its marine products such as the Japanese spiny lobster and giant horned turban. In recent years, a school of dolphins have inhabited the waters around the island, and swimming with them has become a popular tourist attraction. At night, the sky of Toshima turns into a natural planetarium.
