Izu Oshima (Oshima for short, literally ‘big island’) is the largest and northernmost of the Izu Shoto group of islands, about 120km from the port of Tokyo. Oshima (Tokyo Prefecture) is dominated by its active volcano, Mount Mihara, but there are plenty of other natural delights for visitors to enjoy on this sparsely populated island, just a short jetfoil boat trip or flight from Tokyo. Its location gives excellent views of the Izu Peninsula and Mount Fuji on a clear day, especially as evening approaches and the golden-red sun slips beneath the Pacific.
