Isamu-Jima

455px-Isamu_jimaIntroduced in 2004, Isamu-Jima is the largest island in the Tokuno Islands group. Accessible by moongate, the island is dominated by the stratovolcano, Mount Sho. However, there are several other locations on the island that offer both challenge and reward.

Isamu-Jima has a road that nearly runs its entire length, from the Isamu-Jima Moongate in the south to the Winter Spur in the icy north. Look for the ferret racetrack off of the northeast flank of Mount Sho and the Shrine of Isamu that is located off of the northwest flank. There are also about a dozen islands that surround Isamu, including Mount Hakonu, the small volcanic island off the eastern coast.
