Week Six- Izu Islands

TUJ offers several school trips and excursions throughout the semester, so this past weekend I went on a trip through the school to the beautiful Izu Islands!

A beach on Shikine-jima island.

A beach on Nii-jima Island.
The “Greek-inspired” onsen (hot spring) on Nii-jima Island.
Friends relaxing in the onsen, which is one of the few natural hot springs directly on the ocean!

One of the many Moyai statues on Nii-jima Island.
We stayed in hostels on both of the islands, and at the hostel on Nii-jima, we ate a 2.5 hour BBQ dinner, with some of the best meat, seafood, rice, and vegetables I’ve ever had!
