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.
A six-minute bus ride from the center of town sits Sakaiura Beach. With its calm and coral populated waters, it’s one of Chichijima’s most popular beaches for snorkeling and swimming. If you’re feeling adventurous, grab some snorkeling gear and inspect the coral covered ruins of Hinkomaru, a Japanese transport ship that was hit by a US Navy torpedo during the Pacific War.
Out of the water, the park offers a number of public facilities including shaded picnic tables. Have a picnic while you gaze out onto the ocean and try to spot the remains of Hinkomaru poking out just above the water’s surface.
For updated information on opening hours, closings, prices, and more, please check the official website or ask the facility directly.
