Swim with wild dolphins on "Miracle Island"


Mikurajima Island is one of the best places in Japan to see and swim with wild dolphins. The small island, about 200 km south of Tokyo, is known as "Miracle Island" due to its dramatic coastlines, beautiful forests and hiking trails. However, the local dolphins are the stars. Tour guides ensure safe encounters with the dolphins, and careful conservation measures protect the natural environment and surrounding waters.
