In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.
Sitting at the center of Mikurajima Island is Mt. Oyama, an 851-meter-tall mountain volcano that’s not to be confused with Kanagawa’s popular tourist mountain of the same name.
You are able to stroll around the mountainside covered with lush foliage. Wetland plants like boxwood, beech and mulberry trees are growing there. For the best views, head to the mountainside viewing platform from where you can see the volcano-dotted neighboring island of Miyakejima as well as other smaller islands and the Izu Peninsula.
