About Tokyo Islands, seven of them have their special character.

I had a planned diving trip near Hachijo Island. When I want to get on the back ferry I was told the ferry was canceled due to fierce wave that Japanese called “Haru Arashi”(Spring Storm).

So I have at least one more day to stay in the island. The first thing I did is to have my body in the Onsen.

I also played Taiko(Japanese drum), which often occurs in Matsuri(Japanese festival).
