To add more to the island’s glory, it has also become the home of an endangered species of bird. Just last year, up to 200 pairs of greated crested terns have returned on the island and started breeding in the central part of the world’s youngest island Some were even incubating their eggs on the island. The greated crested tern can only be found in one other island in the world, and scientists expect that it stays on the island for long.

Today, Nishinoshima is discreetly enjoying its view of the Pacific, hoping that more will come to see it for its unbreakable spirit.

There are now boat tours that take you around the perimeter of the volcano island.
