Ogasawara Visitor Center exhibits the history and ecosystem of Ogasawara Island. They protect wildlife too. When we visited the center, they captured a waterfowl and released her.

Ogasawara Summer Festival happens at the open space near the B-ship in every August. You can enjoy Bon Dance, fireworks, releasing baby turtles and a music event. I had never seen such a huge fireworks display in front of me before.

Ogasawara Summer Festival is not a tourist information center, but we could mingle with local people to know the islands atmosphere.
