Let’s take a stroll on the island of Toshima!

Japanese

Toshima is a small island just 140 km south of Tokyo that can be walked around in its entirety in less than 3 hours. The terraced forest of camellia japonica makes the entire island look like a finely managed Japanese garden. If you walk up the hilly roads, the panoramic view of Mt. Fuji and the Izu Islands enchants you from various locations. Please enjoy walking around the island, and find the best route of your choice.
