Shikinejima Island


The Izu Islands trip was definitely one of the most anticipated TUJ Student Activities trips for this semester. We took an overnight ferry to Shikinejima Island and spent the day biking around the island, given free reign to visit the island’s beaches and onsens. We also went snorkeling, which gave us the chance to check out local coral reefs and fish. It was a ton of fun to get this break from life in Tokyo. Unfortunately, due to a crazy storm, our trip was cut short by a day. We were unable to visit the second island that we planned to see. All of these photos were taken at Shikinejima Island. Nonetheless, it was a beautiful place to explore.
