A Day at the Beach: Jogashima Island!


Not everything is about studying and the hustle and bustle of Tokyo. Some of the Study Abroad students took a trip out to Jogashima Island for some hiking, eating, and exploring in the waves. The trip included transportation via train and bus from Shinagawa station to Jogashima Island, a meal, and one entertainment ticket.

Part of the package deal included a maguro (tuna) meal. Half of the group chose to use it for lunch and get magurodon (raw tuna over rice).

The group decided to use the entertainment ticket in one of the island’s onsen, or hot spring baths. Cameras are not permitted in the onsen, but the experience brought the entire trip to a relaxing close before we headed back to busy Tokyo.
