“Islander” is an exchange event that connects “islands and cities” and “islands with islands”, where people living on islands appeal the wonders of their islands’ nature, history, culture, and life. This year, the 30th event, will be held in a hybrid format with online and Ikebukuro Sunshine City venues, and more than 60 remote island groups from all over Japan will participate, from Rebun Island in Hokkaido in the north to Yonaguni Island in Okinawa Prefecture in the south. Don’t miss this chance to interact directly with the islands! !

Islands from all over the country will set up booths to offer advice on immigration and tourism, sell special products, and hold workshops. In addition, there will be a stage project that conveys the charm of the island, such as traditional performing arts, and job introductions for the island by Hello Work staff.
The stage, which begins with Hachijo Taiko drums, will feature performances rarely seen in Tokyo, such as island singers.
