Tokyo in fact has islands called Tokyo Seven Islands. They are actually part of Izu Islands. In history the owner of Tokyo(Edo) found these islands first then they belong to Tokyo. Izu Oshima is one of Tokyo Seven Islands. And it is a popular tourist site for the people from Kanto Area. You can access Izu Oshima by ferry both from Tokyo Takeshiba Pier and Shizuoka Atami Pier.
I always go to Izu Penninsula, but actually there are three peninsulas nearby Tokyo: Izu(Shizuoka Prefecture), Miura(Kanagawa Prefecture) and Boso(Chiba Prefecture). This time I went to Miura Peninsula.
