Chichijima Island of the Ogasawara Islands, Tokyo, Japan

 

The Ogasawara Islands are an archipelago of over 30 tropical and subtropical islands, 1,000 km directly south of Tokyo, Japan.

 

The Ogasawara Islands were added to UNESCO's list of World Natural Heritage sites in 2011.

These islands have been totally isolated since its birth, which led to the development of many endemic species, thus often dubbed as the "Galapagos of the Orient".

 

It takes 25 hours by boat leaving from Tokyo Bay, which is the only way to get there!
