How to get to Chichijima, Ogasawara Islands

(Ogasawara Maru)

The only way to access the Ogasawara Islands is by the Ogasawara-maru Ferry from Tokyo in a 25.5 hour journey. The ferry departs Tokyo once every six days except during Golden Week and the first three weeks of August when departures are increased to once every three days. Also, the ferry does not operate for two weeks in mid January due to an annual inspection. Ferry departures can be delayed by a day or more when the sea is very rough, for example, due to a typhoon.

The Ogasawara-maru Ferry departs from Takeshiba Pier, which is next to Takeshiba Station on the Yurikamome or a ten minute walk from Hamamatsucho Station on the Yamanote Line. The boat ride is an adventure in itself. The ferry first travels the length of Tokyo Bay, offering interesting views of the Rainbow Bridge, Odaiba, Haneda Airport and Yokohama before passing the Izu Islands and then traveling through the night to arrive at Futami Port on Chichijima the next day.

The ferry offers several different cabin classes on five decks that range in price from about 27,000 to 70,000 yen per person one way. The cheapest 2nd class fare includes a bedroll in a dormitory room. A women only dormitory room is also available. Higher class cabins consist of semi-private bunks and private rooms, the latter of which include in room toilets and showers.

The Ogasawara-maru's facilities also include a restaurant, bar, showers, store, vending machines, hot water dispensers, lounge, sitting areas, karaoke room, kids room, smoking room, video room, public phones and small valuables lockers, but there are no large sized lockers on board. Passengers may also venture outside to the top two decks of the boat. A tour of the ship's bridge is held each morning.

Futami Port in the north of Chichijima is the transport hub of the Ogasawara Islands, where the ferries from Tokyo and Hahajima dock. It is surrounded by the only sizable town on Chichijima, where most of the hotels, restaurants, shops and tour companies are located. The town itself is small and walkable.

The main road on the island connects Futami Port with Kominato Beach eight kilometers further south. It is served by an hourly bus that costs 200 yen per ride. A secondary road leads through the island's mountainous interior and is not served by public transportation. Hotels and tour companies provide pick up services to their clients. Furthermore, bicycles, scooters and cars can be rented on the island.
