The Ogasawara Islands are scattered over 30 large and small islands in a vast sea area of 20 degrees 25 minutes to 27 degrees 44 minutes north latitude and 136 degrees 4 minutes to 153 degrees 59 minutes east longitude.
Iwojima and Okinotorishima etc.., which are famous for movies and news, are included, and approximately 1/3 of Japan's exclusive economic zone (EEZ) is secured by these Ogasawara islands. Although both belong to the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, even Chichijima, the main island, does not have an airport, and access is limited to liners that operate approximately once every 6 days between Tokyo and Takeshiba Pier.
