5 hours ferry ride from Tokyo. Niijima(新島) is an utopia, an small island surrounded by pacific ocean. Its a paradise for surfer, or if you are not hardcore on oceanic sport, you can instead choose to spent whole day lying at the beach listen to the orchestra of the wave hitting hard on the shore. Or even cycle around the island and explore the public hot spring.
Summer + beach. Best combination. right?
Ooo...I wish I can spent the whole summer at the island. And gosh, I miss my Island so much, when can I go home?
