Transportation to Islands

The islands accessible from the Kanto region by ship and plane are full of unspoiled nature and local charm. To get to the Izu or Ogasawara islands from Tokyo, you take either a passenger ship from Takeshiba Pier or a plane. It is best to make a reservation by phone. Takeshiba Pier is a minute’s walk from Yurikamome Takeshiba Station. Receive your tickets and board at the Takeshiba Passenger Ship Terminal.

Planes depart from Chofu Airport. Helicopters also fly between Tokyo and the Izu Islands. For details on ticket reservations and boarding procedures, visit the operator’s website.
